QoS Guarantee in a Batched Poisson Multirate Loss Model Supporting Elastic and Adaptive Traffic
In this paper, the authors consider a single link that supports both elastic and adaptive traffic of Batch Poisson arriving calls, under the Bandwidth Reservation (BR) policy, whereby they can achieve specific QoS per service-class. Arriving batches have a generally distributed batch size, and can be serviced either as a whole or in part (partial batch blocking discipline), depending on the available link bandwidth. Blocked calls are lost. Accepted calls of a batch can compress or expand their bandwidth; elastic calls expand or compress their service time accordingly, while adaptive calls do not alter their service time. This system does not have a Product Form Solution.
