Paper Abstract

In this paper, Extreme Value Theory (EVT) is presented to analyze wireless network traffic. The role of EVT is to allow the development of procedures that are scientifically and statistically rational to estimate the extreme behavior of random processes. There are two primary methods for studying extremes: the Block Maximum (BM) method and the Points Over Threshold (POT) method. By taking limited traffic data that is greater than the threshold value, our experiment and analysis show the wireless network traffic model obtained with the EVT fits well with that of empirical distribution of traffic, thus illustrating that EVT has a good application foreground in the analysis of wireless network traffic.
