A Queuing Model for Congestion Control and Reliable Data Transfer in Cable Access Networks
A set of simple queuing theory models which can model the average response of a network of computers to a given traffic load has been implemented. The impact of variations in traffic patterns and intensities, channel capacities, and message protocols can be assessed using them because of the lack of fine detail in the network traffic rates, traffic patterns, and the hardware used to implement the networks. In order to access the networks it's a two stage sequential procedure for data transfer from a node at customer's premises to a central node. The stations which have data to transmit request will undergo contention stage and requests that are successfully received by the central node enter into the second stage.
