This letter presents a procedure to estimate the performance of a single-link system with nonlinear equivalent capacity. The idea is to convert the problems from the nonlinear domain into the linear domain so that the efficient numerical techniques in the linear domain can be employed. Based on the Kaufman-Roberts's recursion (1981), the proposed procedure has the time complexity=O(Ck) and the space complexity=O(k), where C is the link capacity and k is the number of call types, The absolute accuracy of the proposed procedure in estimating the blocking probabilities is in the order of 10/sup -3/-10/sup -2/ for the reported results.
