(invented by Tim Berners-Lee)
this year
Digital Report 2019 – Some statistics

• Internet users : 4.388
• Active social media users : 3.484
• Mobile social media users : 3.256
• 9-10% annual increase in Internet and social media users
• Average on-line time per day – 6 hours 42 minutes
• Applications
• 92% watch video online
• Playing games – 30% , Watching others playing games online (23%)
• Watch eSports – 16%

Why Quality of Experience (QoE) matters?
QoS and QoE - ITU
• ITU-T Rec. E. 800 defines QoS as “collective effect of service
performance which determines the degree of satisfaction of a user
of the service”
• ITU-T Recommendation P.10/G.100, defines Quality of Experience
(QoE) as, “the overall acceptability of an application or service, as
perceived subjectively by the end-user”
• QoE includes complete end-to-end system effects (client, terminal,
network and service infrastructure)
• Overall acceptability may be influenced by user expectations and
context.
ITU – QoS Perspective
ITU-T Recommendation E.800 has four (4) QoS view points namely:
 Customer's QoS requirements;
 Service Provider's offerings of QoS (or planned/targeted QoS);
 QoS achieved or delivered;
 Customer Survey ratings of received QoS.
The closer the 4 view points are in a given service, the better the QoS delivered.

Analogies
• Physical road infrastructure has striking similarities to cyber
infrastructure (electronic highways) – particularly in this part of the
world where everyday new users come online.
• Contrast this with developed countries where virtually everyone is online.
• In this part of the world traffic is chaotic.
• What is its impact and what are the possible solutions?

Stakeholder concerns
• Users
• Lack of predictability, consistency leads to productivity loss
• Infrastructure provider (Government)
• Budgetary constraints – the best for a given budget
• Return on Investment - This might not be direct but still important (E.g.
improved economic activity due to a new highway)
• Road/Traffic Management
• Daily task of managing the traffic
• Need some form of control, policies – E.g. what vehicles are allowed (no
containers during busy period), priority lanes for buses (public transport) at
busy times
• Handling of emergency vehicles
Solutions
• Intuitively what many governments do as a solution is to build new
roads or widen existing roads.
• This gives a temporary solution but traffic invariably catches up with
new roads.
• We need a long term sustainable solutions – control of traffic is
absolutely essential.
Fundamental Rule of Traffic :
People tend to drive more in new
and newly widened roads.

Measurement of QoE
• Subjective indicator
• How do we measure?
• Mean Opinion Score (MOS)
• No universally agreeable measurement technique to this date.
• ITU has provided a guideline:
• ITU-T G.1011 - Reference guide to quality of experience assessment
methodologies
• Active research area
• Rating systems developed by different vendors
• No uniformity
How do we fulfill user expectations in this context?
Impact of Youtube on Internet Traffic
Net Neutrality
• The principle that Internet service providers (ISPs) must treat all
Internet communications equally, and not discriminate or charge
differently based on user, content, website, platform, application,
type of equipment, source address, destination address, or method of
communication.
• With net neutrality, ISPs may not intentionally block, slow down, or
charge money for specific online content. Without net neutrality,
ISPs may prioritize certain types of traffic, meter others, or potentially
block traffic from specific services, while charging consumers for
various tiers of service.

Operator Challenges and Few Questions
• Measurement of QoE
• Best methodologies to meet user QoE expectations
• Maximize ROI of existing infrastructure
Few questions:
- Are we living in a bandwidth constrained country? (or rather Data
Quota constrained country?)
- Can we think of a different business model of providing Internet
services?
- Net Neutrality and QoE? Can they co-exist?
With 5G
• Billions of new devices (IOT) will add to network traffic
• Higher Access Speeds will lead to creation of high bandwidth
applications (E.g. 4K or 8K Video Streaming, High Resolution &
Realistic VR Applications etc.,)
We need our future Digital Infrastructure to display
- Predictability
- Consistency
- Reliability
Future Digital Infrastructure will only be meaningful if it brings
- Higher Quality of Life/Quality of Experience to all its users.
Looking into the future
How do we assure Quality of Experience for all
users of Cyber infrastructure?
• We need 100% traffic visibility (not really the payload – privacy needs
to be respected)
• Without full visibility, traffic control would be impossible.
• Increasing bandwidth in a link where user count is very high will not
address QoE considerations.
Real-life Impact of Traffic Shaping
www.paraqum.com
• Traffic captured at University of Moratuwa internet gateway
• Youtube traffic (Red) limited to 1 Mbps per IP from 8.30am to 4.30pm
• At 4.30pm, shaping stops and youtube is allowed to consume the full bandwidth
• Clearly visible how other traffic is adversely affected as a result of Youtube
traffic taking over majority of the bandwidth.
Way Forward
• QoE to be used as the base for provision of Internet Services
• Collective effort towards a new “user-centric” business model of
delivering Internet services

  • 18. Operator Challenges and Few Questions • Measurement of QoE • Best methodologies to meet user QoE expectations • Maximize ROI of existing infrastructure Few questions: - Are we living in a bandwidth constrained country? (or rather Data Quota constrained country?) - Can we think of a different business model of providing Internet services? - Net Neutrality and QoE? Can they co-exist?
  • 19. With 5G • Billions of new devices (IOT) will add to network traffic • Higher Access Speeds will lead to creation of high bandwidth applications (E.g. 4K or 8K Video Streaming, High Resolution & Realistic VR Applications etc.,) We need our future Digital Infrastructure to display - Predictability - Consistency - Reliability Future Digital Infrastructure will only be meaningful if it brings - Higher Quality of Life/Quality of Experience to all its users. Looking into the future
  • 20. How do we assure Quality of Experience for all users of Cyber infrastructure? • We need 100% traffic visibility (not really the payload – privacy needs to be respected) • Without full visibility, traffic control would be impossible. • Increasing bandwidth in a link where user count is very high will not address QoE considerations.
  • 21. Real-life Impact of Traffic Shaping www.paraqum.com • Traffic captured at University of Moratuwa internet gateway • Youtube traffic (Red) limited to 1 Mbps per IP from 8.30am to 4.30pm • At 4.30pm, shaping stops and youtube is allowed to consume the full bandwidth • Clearly visible how other traffic is adversely affected as a result of Youtube traffic taking over majority of the bandwidth.
  • 22. Way Forward • QoE to be used as the base for provision of Internet Services • Collective effort towards a new “user-centric” business model of delivering Internet services

Editor's Notes

  1. What is Internet? Should this be a question to ask?
  2. Interestingly, Japanese spent very low amount of time 3:45 followed by Germany, France and other European nations (between 4-6 hrs). Philliphines highest : 10+ hours
