The discovery of long-range dependence (a kind of asymptotic fractal scaling) in packet data from LANs and WANs, was followed by further work detailing evidence for multifractal behaviour in TCP/IP traffic in WANs. In terms of networking however, physical mechanisms for such behaviour have never been convincingly demonstrated, leaving open the question of whether multifractal traffic models are of black box type, or alternatively if there is anything real behind them. In this paper we review… CONTINUE READING
