    It is pertinent to develop a set of simple parameters that can best characterize the variability and the statistical correlations of the packet arrival process. These parameters are then used by the network to allocate its resources among the different users in order to avoid congestion and maintain a predefined quality of service (QOS) for each user. The traffic characterization and modeling of t... View full abstract»
