ABSTRACT
The editor comments on the article "Economics of QOS on WAN Access Lines," by John Bartlett and Peter Sevcik of NetForecast. The article deals with the nexus of two factors that affect quality of service: Packet loss and line utilization. Though they consider these metrics in the context of an end-to-end connection, they focus their attention on the access link-i.e., the circuit that connects the service provider core with the enterprise network. In the end, the dilemma that Bartlett, Sevcik and Moore confront isn't a technical one. It's a matter of what kind of performance you can get for the amount of money that you can reasonably hope to spend.
