This paper is aimed at the study of arrival rate and holding time used in mobile communication networks, also to determine the best suitable statistical probability distribution of both arrival rate and holding time or service time in mobile communication network. The most general acceptable assumption about arrival rate is Poisson distribution and the holding time is exponential distribution in traffic modeling of mobile communication networks. Exhaustive literature review is deployed for details explanation on discrete random variables of arrival rate and continuous holding time use in traffic modeling of mobile communication networks. From the research work, the arrival rate is explained using point process or counting process, which leads to two unique properties, they are orderly and memorylessness.
