Tools for monitoring Quality of Service parameters in Next Generation Networks

Alexander Suarez R., Zeida María Solarte A., Juan Carlos Cuéllar Q.


The article presents the functional description about Eagle Network Sniffer tool, developed to measure quality of service parameters in next generation networks. Additionally we show the testbed implemented to test the Eagle Network Sniffer tool and the comparative data obtained with other free use tool, in order to evaluate and verify it operation.
