This paper presents experimental checking of the model for measuring available bandwidth in IPv6. The experiment was performed using a measuring infrastructure RIPE test box, ensuring precision accuracy. The experimental results showed that to increase the accuracy of available bandwidth, the authors need to neutralize the effect of the variable part of the delay by increasing the number of measurements. Finally, the authors made the computer simulation, which allowed them to establish dependence between the measurement error of the available bandwidth and the number of measurements.
