Approximation for loss probability in finite queue fed by correlated arrivals of packets with variable length

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A discrete-time finite queue where an arriving packet of variable length occupied as many places in the buffer as its length was considered. An approximation for the loss probability was obtained which turned out to be a geometric function of the buffer size. Accuracy of the approximation was illustrated by some numerical examples.
