Analytical Performance Evaluation of Mobile Internet Access via GPRS Networks

  title={Analytical Performance Evaluation of Mobile Internet Access via GPRS Networks},
  author={Ulrich Vornefeld},
This paper deals with analytical concepts for performance evaluation of packet switching mobile radio networks. A realistic characterisation of source traffic with means of marked Markovian arrival processes (MMAP) serves as an input process for a queuing model. The analysis of this model permits to derive the quantities of interest and allows to determine the achievable quality of service, which is quantified in terms of packet delays and packet losses. The applicability of the presented…

By evaluation of WWW traffic generated during stochastic simulation, it is shown that important characteristics of recent Internet traffic are depicted by Vornefeld's analytical source model, finding that the analytical approach is well suited for understanding the general impact of various system parameters.
Extended Erlang-B law for performance evaluation of radio resources sharing in GSM/(E)GPRS networks
A simple and accurate Erlang-like law is derived for the dimensioning of radio resources in GSM/GPRS/EDGE networks taking into account the voice and data traffic mix in a cell.
Traffic engineering concepts for cellular packet radio networks with quality of service support
Traffic engineering concepts for cellular packet radio networks that are applied but not limited to the standards GPRS and EGPRS are presented and can be integrated into the radio interface capacity planning process.
Discrete-Time Markov Model for EDGE / GPRS Radio Engineering with Finite-length Sessions
A constructive model based on an original discrete-time Markov process that captures the detailed behavior of the radio allocator when a finite number of users are performing finite-length ON/OFF sessions in the cell is developed.
Performance evaluation of GPRS/EDGE networks: A novel discrete-time Markov model
An original recursive formula is proposed that can accurately calculate transfer time and throughput distributions for GPRS/EDGE radio engineering and provide a view on the full statistics of the end-user quality of experience.

A model for GPRS/EDGE network engineering is developed in order to obtain an Erlang-like law based on a discrete-time Markov chain, simplified by Taylor series expansion.
An Erlang-like law for GPRS/EDGE engineering and its first validation on live traffic
This work shows how to calibrate an Erlang-like law based on Markovian modeling for this complex sharing resource situation and to validate it against real data and presents a complete validation framework on a live network for a simple and efficient GSM/(E)GPRS analytical tool.
An efficient analytical model for QoS engineering in mobile cellular networks
A ldquoconditional product-formrdquo Markovian model that takes into account the QoS differentiation between real time and non-real time classes and gives closed form expressions for all the required performance parameters at a click speed is developed.


Wireless Internet access based on GPRS
The results show that GPRS provides bandwidth-efficient support for bursty applications like Web access, and the performance the end user perceives when retrieving information from the Web using this access technology is discussed.
Wide area traffic: the failure of Poisson modeling
It is found that user-initiated TCP session arrivals, such as remote-login and file-transfer, are well-modeled as Poisson processes with fixed hourly rates, but that other connection arrivals deviate considerably from Poisson.

Computing Distributions and Moments in Polling Models by Numerical Transform Inversion
Fitting Phase-type Distributions via the EM Algorithm
An extended EM algorithm is used to minimize the information divergence (maximize the relative entropy) in the density approximation case and fits to Weibull, log normal, and Erlang distributions are used as illustrations of the latter.
