Communication performance models enable distributed real-time and multimedia applications to describe their performance requirements as regards throughput, delay and loss behavior of a particular communication service. The purpose of this paper is to give a basic understanding of communication performance models by presenting four different models: two models designed by the Tenet Group, one model on which ATM channel traffic is characterized by the ATM Forum, and the RFC 1363 Flow Specification of the Internet community. Besides their presentation in a unified terminology, their usability is shown by a video-on-demand example.
