A universal analytic approximation is proposed for the performance analysis of a general queueing model of a shared buffer ATM switch architecture with bursty arrivals. The forms of the joint, aggregate and marginal state probabilities are characterised via entropy maximisation. As an application, a continuous-time maximum entropy (ME) solution is implemented at equilibrium by assuming that the arrival process to each port of the ATM switch is modelled by a Compound Poisson Process (CPP) with… 
A product form approximation for arbitrary discrete time networks of shared buffer queues

A discrete time queueing model of an N/spl times/d shared buffer ATM switch is considered, which is loaded with unbalanced and correlated bursty traffic and the maximum entropy method is applied to obtain the steady-state probability distribution of the queueing system.
An Information Theoretic Methodology for QNMs of ATM Switch Architectures
The performance modelling and quantitative analysis of Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) switch architectures constitute a rapidly growing application area due to the their ever expanding usage and
Cost Effective Methodologies for Queueing Models of ATM Switched Networks
Two cost-effective methodologies for the exact and approximate analysis of discrete-time queueing models of multi-buffered and shared buffer ATM switch architectures with bursty and/or correlated traffic are reviewed.
Maximum Entropy Analysis of Queueing Network Models
Entropy maximisation is used to characterise product-form approximations and resolution algorithms for arbitrary continuous-time and discrete-time Queueing Network Models (QNMs) at equilibrium under Repetitive-Service (RS) blocking and Arrivals First (AF) or Departures First (DF) buffer management policies.
Performance analysis of buffered Banyan ATM switch architectures
The principle of Maximum Entropy (ME) and the notion of system decomposition are combined towards the creation of an iterative cost-effective approximation algorithm for the performance analysis of


A discrete-time queueing model of the shared buffer ATM switch with bursty arrivals
A model of the shared buffer ATM switch as a discrete-time queueing system and the construction of the superposition of all the arrival processes to the switch showed that the approximate results have a good accuracy.

A general approach is developed for the analysis of set of queues to which the arrival streams are correlated, which could be used to assess the impacts on shared buffer requirements due to other types of stream correlation (e.g. positive correlations) that may result from other traffic assumptions.
A Maximum Entropy Analysis of the G/G/1 Queue at Equilibrium
The principle of maximum entropy is used to analyse a G/G/1 queue at equilibrium when the constraints involve only the first two moments of the interarrival-time and service-time distributions.
A shared buffer memory switch for an ATM exchange
A shared buffer memory switch in which output buffer memories are shared by all the switch output ports and are alloted to one particular output port as the occasion demands can further improve the hardware-utilization efficiency of the memory switch by increasing the buffer memory usage rate.
Entropy maximisation and queueing network models
This paper traces the progress achieved so far towards the creation of ME and MRE product-form approximations and related algorithms for the performance analysis of general Queueing Network Models (QNMs) and indicates potential research extensions in the area.
