|Publication Date:||1 June 2008|
Introduction to areas with usage of H.248 statistics
H.248 statistics are defined and used for different purposes. They may be categorized into the following main areas:
1) Usage metering: Relates typically to the traffic volume on the application level; see, e.g., clauses E.11 and E.12 of [ITU-T H.248.1] for basic support.
2) Reporting of QoS related metrics: See, e.g., [ITU-T H.248.30].
3) Recording of successful, unsuccessful or specific policing actions: See, e.g., [ITU-T H.248.43].
4) Validation of network capacity allocations: Relates typically to the traffic volume on the lowest layer of transport capacity reservation, e.g., could be layer 2, 3 or other; dependent on the specific local descriptor and/or remote descriptor information.)
Scope of H.248 statistics defined by this Recommendation
The scope of this Recommendation is related to H.248 statistics defined, in particular, for measurements on an application data level. Served user instances for such statistics may be in the area of usage metering.
