The IETF IAB plenary last Wednesday had a presenter from the FCC,
who claimed to care about latency in response to my question.
I don't claim it's a good use of your time to listen to these, but
probably having the links in the archive is useful.
5. Technical Topic: Measurement Issues in the Internet
Moderator: Alissa Cooper
Speakers: Sam Crawford and Henning Schulzrinne
Although network performance measurement has been a topic of research,
standardization, and development for decades, recent efforts to create
national, regional, and global access network measurement testbeds and
frameworks are drawing renewed interest. These efforts seek to provide
consistent measurements of fine-grained performance metrics such as
packet loss, delay, and throughput, as well as higher order tests to
capture quality of experience with respect to specific applications and
services. Some standardized metrics and tests exist, including those
developed in the IPPM WG, but a unified framework for observing and
reporting the quality metrics that define users experiences across
different networks has yet to be developed. This plenary will examine
the implications of large-scale network performance measurement for the
Internet by exploring the approaches, results, and challenges involved
with measurement efforts from around the world.
