The high expectations of performance and availability for wireless mobile systems has presented great challenges in the modelling and design of fault tolerant wireless systems. The proper modelling methodology to study the degradation of such systems is so-called performability modelling. In this paper, we give overview of approaches for the construction and the solution of performability models for wireless cellular networks. First, we start with the Erlang loss model, in which hierarchical… CONTINUE READING
