Latency In Telecom Networks

Mar 18, 2009

Download It used to be that latency�the time it takes for a signal to travel from one point to another in telecom networks�was of concern only to people using specific applications such as international voice calls transmitted via satellite. Such calls are sensitive to high levels of latency, which negatively impacts the voice quality of the call. More recently, however, latency has become of interest to a broader audience. Businesses� increased reliance on telecom networks and improved processing speeds for computer networks and the LANs/WANs that interconnect them, have combined to make the speed at which a signal travels in a telecom network more noticeable and critical.
