An open queuing network for analyzing multilayered window flow control mechanisms consisting of different subnetworks is presented. The number of customers in each subnetwork is controlled by a semaphore queue. The queuing network is analyzed approximately using decomposition and aggregation. The approximation was validated against exact numerical and simulation data, and it was found to have an acceptable relative error. The queuing model is easy to implement, and it can be included in a software package. Using this queuing network, a case study involving the modeling and analysis of the ISO X25 flow control mechanism is presented
