In this paper, we consider the age of information (AoI) of a discrete time status updating system, focusing on finding the stationary AoI distribution assuming that the Ber/G/1/1 queue is used. Following the standard queueing theory, we show that by invoking a two-dimensional state vector which tracks the AoI and packet age in system simultaneously, the stationary AoI distribution can be derived by analyzing the steady state of the constituted two-dimensional stochastic process. We give the…

An age of information timeliness metric is formulated and a general result for the AoI that is applicable to a wide variety of multiple source service systems is derived that makes AoI evaluation to be comparable in complexity to finding the stationary distribution of a finite-state Markov chain.
