This paper provides a statistical characterization of the traffic in a fiber network for voice and data transmission. This research operates with real data from more than 33,000 users. The most significant applications (ftp, http, p2p services, . . .) have been processed. Also, a model of the traffic generated is implemented, representing the usage that network subscribers make of the system. We demonstrate that this traffic is statistically self-similar, such behaviour having serious… CONTINUE READING
