This paper analyzes a model of a multiplexer for packetized voice and data. A major part of the analysis is devoted to characterizing the aggregate packet arrival process resulting from the superposition of separate voice streams. This is done via the index of dispersion for intervals (IDI), which describes the cumulative covariance among successive interarrival times. The ID1 seems very promising as a measurement tool to characterize complex arrival processes. This paper also describes the… CONTINUE READING
