Analyzing Trends in the Mean Resequencing Buffer Occupancy and the Mean Resequencing Delay
Under the assumption that all channels have the same transmission rate but possibly different time-invariant error rates, the authors derive the probability generating function of the resequencing buffer occupancy and the probability mass function of the resequencing delay. Then, by assuming the Gilbert - Elliott model for each channel, they extend their analysis to time-varying channels. Through examples, they compute the probability mass functions of the resequencing buffer occupancy and the resequencing delay for time-invariant channels. They analyze trends in the mean resequencing buffer occupancy and the mean resequencing delay as functions of system parameters.
