Integrated network technologies, such as ATM, support multimedia applications with vastly diierent bandwidth needs, connection request rates, and holding patterns. Due to their high level of exibility and communication rates approaching several gigabits per second, the classical network planning techniques, which rely heavily on statistical analysis, are less relevant to this new generation of networks. In this paper, we propose a new model for broadband networks and investigate the question of… CONTINUE READING
