The IETF has completed its work on the core specification of TWAMP -- the Two-Way Active Measurement Protocol [RFC5357]. TWAMP is an extension of the One-way Active Measurement Protocol, OWAMP [RFC4656]. The TWAMP specification gathered wide review as it approached completion, and the by-products were several recommendations for new features in TWAMP. There are a growing number of TWAMP implementations at present, and widespread usage is expected. There are even devices that are designed to test implementations for protocol compliance.
