Available Bandwidth Measurement of Campus Wide Optical Fiber Network Using Packet Pair Technique: A Study of Himachal Pradesh University

Information and Communication Technology (ICT) plays an important role in computer networking and networks are the major component of ICT. Available bandwidth is an important bandwidth metric used today. This paper presents the measurement of available bandwidth of Himachal Pradesh University-Campus Wide Optical Fiber Network (CWOFN) through packet pair technique. The packet pair technique is a most popular active probing technique to measure available bandwidth. This work has been done with the help of IPERF and JPERF that estimates the end-to-end available bandwidth at the bottleneck link of the path. This study also presents the comparison of various bandwidth measurement techniques and tools.
