Traffic measurements on a ring local area computer network at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology are presented. The analysis of the arrival pattern shows that the arrival processes are neither Poisson nor compound Poisson. An alternative model called “packet train” is proposed. In the train model, the traffic on the network consists of a number of(More)

The aim of this paper is to study the behavior of two characteristics of ATM video traffic which are critical on the quality degradation introduced by the network. These characteristics are cell loss and delay jitter. This study takes the burstiness of the traffic, due to its variable-rate nature, as a reference. Cell loss can alter the characteristics of(More)
