  journal={Queueing Syst.},
Polling systems have been used as a central model for the modeling and analysis of many communication systems. Examples include the Token Ring network and a communications switch. The common property of these systems is the need to efficiently share a single resource (server) among N entities (stations). In spite of the massive research effort in this area, very little work has been devoted to the issue of how to efficiently operate these systems. In the present paper we deal with this problem… CONTINUE READING
