Analysis of Traffic Distribution and Blocking Probability in Future Wireless Networks



Future wireless networks are envisioned to provide good quality multimedia services to mobile users anywhere at anytime. Traditional analysis of teletraffic in such networks assumes that call arrivals follow a Poisson process, as each cell is being modeled as an M/G/c/c queueing system. This does not reflect the real situation since handoff traffic arrivals are not generally Poissonian. In this paper, we propose to model each cell in future wireless networks as a G/G/c/c queueing system. As such a model has not been explicitly addressed in the literature, our main contribution is to propose a solution which enables to evaluate both traffic distribution and blocking probability within each cell of the service area. Result analysis reveals that coefficient of variation of call arrivals has more impact on the network performance than coefficient of variation of channel holding time.
