traffic contract

An agreement between a customer and network provider that stipulates a certain type of channel allotted to the customer. It may also guarantee a minimum amount of bandwidth as well as quality of service (QoS) parameters such as a guaranteed maximum delay between packets. Network outage may be part of the contract, which states the guaranteed uptime as well as compensation if the network is down beyond a certain length of time. See QoS.
