ABSTRACT: Issue 1 of GR-3059,Generic Requirements for Voice over Packet End-to-End Performance, sets forth generic end-to-end performance
requirements for packet based networks providing voice service using Next Generation Networks (NGN) architecture. These requirements
consist of performance parameters definitions, objectives, and allocation rules. The end-to-end objectives may be specialized to
specific networks through the use of the allocation rules. To complement these allocation rules, objectives are also given for selected
network elements in the NGN architecture. Both the case of pure IP and ATM networks are considered, along with the case of a hybrid IP
and ATM network.
These requirements provide a basis for interworking between networks, and give guidance to equipment manufacturers. They offer
consistency with the minimal performance floors of standards, and can be used in network design and capacity planning.
When using GR-3059, you may want to refer to SR-4717, ANSI T1.517, and/or ITU-T I.352, I.353, I.356, and Y.1540 (replaced
