Hi all,
The report of the Workshop on Reducing Internet Latency
(http://www.internetsociety.org/latency2013) talks about a very interesting
concept: "latency budget":
"A latency budget is applicable to the application and is consumed by
sources of latency."
"Latency budgets can be hard or soft and may be derived from biological or
computational expectations."
"The application operates effectively only when the cost is kept within the
Since TCM-TF savings require the addition of an small latency as a
counterpart, perhaps we could say something like "if an amount of latency
budget is available, a part of it can be consumed in multiplexing packets,
thus providing bandwidth savings".
And some sentences of the draft about delay limits could even be rewritten
accordingly: for example, instead of talking about "delay recommendations"
in section 6, we could talk about "latency budget" for each application.
What do you think?
Best regards,
