The Output of a Switch, Or, Eeective Bandwidths for Networks

  title={The Output of a Switch, Or, Eeective Bandwidths for Networks},
  author={Damon Wischik},
Consider a switch which queues traac from many independent input ows. We show that in the large deviations limiting regime in which the number of inputs increases and the service rate and buuer size are increased in proportion, the statistical characteristics of a ow are essentially unchanged by passage through the switch. This signiicantly simpliies the analysis of networks of switches. It means that each traac ow in a network can be assigned an eeective bandwidth, independent of the other ows… CONTINUE READING
