Paper Abstract

An understanding of the traffic characteristics and accurate traffic models are necessary for the improvement of the capability of wireless networks. In this paper we have analyzed the non-linear dynamical behavour of several real traffic traces collected from wireless testbeds. We have found strong evidence that the wireless traffic is chaotic from our observations. That is we found from the traffic correlation dimension, largest Lyapunov exponent and the principal components analysis, which are typical indicators of chaotic traffic. This gives us the good theoretical basis for the analysis and modeling of wireless traffic using Chaos Theory.
