The blocking events, overflows and losses in telecommunications, especially in systems with very low probability, are one of the major estimation problems. Speed-up simulation is the most convenient method for estimation of rare events. The speed-up simulation in this investigation is done with one of the splitting methods—RESTART with implementation of LRE. The main purpose of the research is to determine the significant parameters for speed-up simulation of network of queues: tandem and parallel queues.
