The paper addresses the idea of utilization of Erlang formulas in asynchronous ATM and IP networks. Based on the common properties of synchronous and asynchronous networks the authors have proposed the utilization of Erlang formulas not only for synchronous networks, but also for asynchronous networks. It is possible to describe traffic in asynchronous networks by calculation of following parameters - loss, link utilization and bandwidth. They present some simulation results from Matlab. Today, much attention is focused on description of traffic in asynchronous packet networks. There are various methods for traffic description. Many of them are complex with high computational requirements.
