|•||(RF) Connection Retainability:A metric of the user’s ability to successfully deactivate a PDP connection on the network.|
|•||Task Accessibility:A metric of the user’s ability to successfully start a task. The successful task initiation rate is detailed by protocol and direction (HTTP, FTP downlink, FTP uplink).|
|•||Task Retainability:A metric of the user’s ability to successfully complete a task. The successful task termination rate is detailed by protocol and direction.|
|•||Throughput:Throughputs are detailed per task type.|
|•||Ping Delay:Ping delay (round-trip) mean, percent of ping delay < 1 second and graphical distributions.|
