Hi Druv,
in your response you've mentioned:
"... this model provides the (1) measured telemetry data .."
Does that apply to the performance metrics listed in Use Cases:
     Customer services have various Service Level Agreement (SLA)
      requirements, such as service availability, latency, latency
      jitter, packet loss rate, Bit Error Rate (BER), etc.
If "yes", I would greatly appreciate it if you can reference measurement
methodology for service availability, latency jitter, and packet loss rate.
