Measurement of GPRS Performance over Libyan GSM Networks - Experimental Results

Authors(4) :-Mohamed Aburkhiss, Ismail Shrena, Sulaiman Yakhlef, Abubaker Abushofa

The General Packet Radio Service (GPRS) is a new bearer service for GSM that greatly simplifies wireless access to packet data networks, such as the Internet, corporate LANs or to mobile portals. The aim of this work is the measurement of the quality of service (QoS) parameters of GPRS over the Libyan GSM networks, Libyana mobile phone and Al-Madar Al-Jadeed Company. The measured parameters of GPRS are the throughput, round trip-time, delay time, packet loss, packet duplicate, upload speed, and download speed. To evaluate these Parameters, End-to-End measurements are used. At one end is the client (mobile) and at the other end is the measurement server. This server is located with interne address. A special analysis algorithm was implemented.net and used for analysis the measured data. Finally, the measured values of quality of surface parameters of GPRS over the two Libyan mobile operators are illustrated and compared with the theoretical values that could be calculated beforehand.
