Discussion of the Analysis of Self-similar Teletraffic with Long-range Dependence (LRD) at the Network Layer Level
Keywords:Long-range-dependent, network layer, network traffic, self-similar process
AbstractTraffic streams, sources as well as aggregated traffic flows, often exhibit long-range-dependent (LRD) properties. This paper presents the theoretical foundations to justify that the behavior of traffic in a high-speed computer network can be modeled from a self-similar perspective by limiting its scope of analysis to the network layer, since the most relevant properties of self-similar processes are consistent for use in the formulation of traffic models when performing this specific task.
