Recent studies have shown that the superposition of packet sequences generated by packetized voice sources with speech detection exhibit high burstiness due to inherent correlations between successive interarrival times in the superposition stream.
Much energy is being devoted to studying the promising new asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) technology for supporting multiservice high-speed communication networks-e.g., see Roberts . As indicated in , interest in ATM is stimulated by two factors: First, by new technology making it possible to transmit and switch at very high bandwidths; and, second, by the growing demand for more sophisticated and powerful communication services.
Two of the many many applications of queueing models in communications networks are sizing links in transport networks and buffers in routers. A fundamental part of a queueing model is the arrival process. A Markov-modulated Poisson process (MMPP) is an attractive model for describing backbone packet traffic.
In an effort to address a growing number of telephone marketing calls and certain other telemarketing practices thought to be invasions of privacy, Congress enacted the Telephone Consumer Protection Act of 1991 (TCPA), codified at 47 U.S.C. § 227. We all know about the restrictions on unsolicited telemarketing calls..
