Models of multirate systems in which inelastic and elastic calls (ie-calls and e-calls, respectively) are jointly serviced are investigated. It is assumed that through the entire service period the iecalls simultaneously occupy b ≥ 1 channels of the system, moreover, all the channels begin and complete servicing of the same ie-call simultaneously. The elastic calls simultaneously occupy m channels, mm\(\bar m\), where m and \(\bar m\) are specified quantities, with the service rate being proportional to the number of channels busy servicing e-calls. Models with continuous and discrete band for servicing e-calls are investigated in detail. Effective numerical algorithms for calculating the characteristics of the models are developed and results of computational experiments are presented.
