Paper Abstract

The effect of traffic variability on statistical multiplexing gain is analyzed in a bufferless continuous fluid-flow traffic model. Two different methods are used to account for traffic loss, namely a method based on overflow probability and another one based on traffic loss ratio. It is shown that for both methods, bandwidth savings due to statistical multiplexing gain (SMG) can be significant and increases with increasing traffic variability. It is also shown that SMG and channel utilization increase as the number of composite traffic streams increases and as traffic loss probability/ratio is lowered.
