A Novel Estimation Framework for Quality of Resilience


As the increase of complexity in the telecommunication service and system, the importance of service quality and reliability has also gained more interest. In this paper, state-of-the-art of various quality terms has been discussed; as well, the relationship among these terms toward user satisfaction and a new reliability evaluation perspective has been presented through the measurement parameters. Moreover, the limitations of traditional reliability evaluation methods have been raised; accordingly, the selective resilience parameter algorithm and the modern reliability evaluation method are proposed by using Bayesian statistics. The proposed algorithm can provide practical reliability measurement and can apply for a preventive failure or maintenance plan. Besides, the novel estimation approach can incorporate the effect of both subjective and objective parameters into the service or system reliability estimation.
