Traffic Modeling and Characterization for UTRAN
This paper presents an analytical approach for characterizing the aggregated traffic carried in the UMTS Terrestrial Radio Access Network (UTRAN). The characteristic of the incoming traffic stream of UTRAN is studied based on the measured trace traffic from the simulations. The main idea of the aggregated traffic modelling is to employ Batch Markov Arrival Process (BMAP) model as an analytically tractable model, which considers different lengths of packets and batch arrivals. In this paper, the setup and customization of the BMAP model for characterizing the aggregated traffic in UTRAN is presented. The accuracy of the BMAP model is demonstrated by comparing with simulations and Poisson traffic model. At the end the potential application of the presented approach and its advantages is briefly discussed.
