Computing blocking probabilities in multiclass wavelength routing networks
Sridhar Ramesh, George N. Rouskas, Harry G. Perros
Pages: 87-103
DOI: 10.1145/364996.365001
We present an approximate analytical method to evaluate efficiently and accurately the call blocking probabilities in wavelength routing networks with multiple classes of calls. The model is fairly general and allows each source-destination pair...

On the equivalent bandwidth of self-similar sources
Nelson L. S. Fonseca, Gilberto S. Mayor, Cesar A. V. Neto
Pages: 104-124
DOI: 10.1145/364996.365003
This article presents a method for the computation of the equivalent bandwidth of an aggregate of heterogeneous self-similar sources, as well as the time scales of interest for queueing systems fed by a fractal Brownian motion (fBm) process....

On the use of self-similar processes in network simulation
José C. López-Ardao, Cándido López-García, Andrés Suárez-González, Manuel Fernández-Veiga, Raúl Rodríguez-Rubio
Pages: 125-151
DOI: 10.1145/364996.365004
Several recent traffic measurement studies have convincingly shown the presence of self-similarity in modern high-speed networks, involving a very important revolution in the stochastic modeling of traffic. Thus the use of self-similar processes...

Performance evaluation of multiple time scale TCP under self-similar traffic conditions
Kihong Park, Tsunyi Tuan
Pages: 152-177
DOI: 10.1145/364996.365005
Measurements of network traffic have shown that self-similarity is a ubiquitous phenomenon spanning across diverse network environments. In previous work, we have explored the feasibility of exploiting long-range correlation structure in...
