Latency variation measurements are critical for low latency applications, as are often utilized for Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) Fifth Generation (5G) network environments. Existing performance measurement implementations often use variance for determining latency. Presented herein is a technique for utilizing mean absolute deviation (MAD) as a latency metric because it provides a better representation of latency and outliers don't impact calculated latency values.
