In this paper, the author's overview the various network traffic models, especially focusing on the multiscale analysis. By multiscale analysis the authors mean wavelet-based self-similar and multifractal analysis. Multiscale analysis is advantageous in that it can reveal the scaling behavior of the traffic on large time scale; at the same time characterize small-scale irregularity. This paper also discusses how the authors can apply this analysis technique to wireless LAN traffic characterization.
