Abstract : This report proposes a discrete time model of an Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) statistical multiplexer subject to heterogeneous groups of ON-OFF traffic sources with correlated burst periods. NRaD researchers developed algorithms to compute both the exact transient and steady state cell loss probabilities of the multiplexers. The results yielded by the algorithms have been compared to simulation outputs and they showed perfect agreement (within noise level). The algorithms will be invaluable for resolving basic ATM design issues such as buffer dimensioning maximal loading and admission control.
