Abstract
We develop exact models to analyze the performance of several types and grades of data, voice and video sessions over a cable or DSL based access network. Each session is characterized by a minimum guaranteed data-rate and a maximum allowed data-rate. Sessions would normally transmit at the maximum rate but under congestion some or all sessions would see graceful rate degradation. For each class the blocking probability and the average data-rate attained by a session are computed. In addition, a system-wide probability of rate degradation is also computed. A bufferless model with product-form structure and insensitivity to session holding time distribution except through mean (heavy-tailed distributions are allowed), and a buffered model with standard Markov chain structure are developed. The models are also generalized to allow rate degradation of real-time streaming traffic (e.g., switch from G.711 to G.728 encoding or turn on silence suppression) whenever the total bandwidth usage exceeds a certain threshold. Whenever a model is sensitive to session holding time distribution, that sensitivity is studied through simulations.
