In this paper, the authors presented the results of a series of available bandwidth experiments conducted in a control environment testbed by using WAN Emulator to represent the actual network. The approaches are classified according to the available bandwidth methodology of Self Loading Periodic Streams (SLoPS). The comparative analysis of state-of-the-art available bandwidth will be focusing on a tool called Pathload that used SLoPS methodology, and compare it with their new technique called Path-F3. The results show that Path-F3 can give a near accurate estimation as compared to Pathload.
