In this paper, the authors address traffic engineering problems for wireless communications by proposing a practical technique to construct a DBMAP-based model equivalent to an IPP-based model. On the one hand, IPP-based (ON-OFF) models are widespread in practice to simulate the application layer traffic in wireless networks. On the other hand, DBMAP-based models are backed by the developed matrix-analytic methods. The derived model is easy to use and allows to apply matrix-analytic methods in the performance evaluation of the emerging networking technologies.
