Abstract

Fast Reservation Protocol (FRP) is a Traffic Control scheme intended to multiplex bursty data sources. In this paper we focus on the analysis of the FRP when different sources are multiplexed together in order to study the fairness of the protocol. We present two analytical models to analyse the case in which a set of identical sources is multiplexed with another one of higher rate. Analytical results are compared with simulation results.
