Principles of Traffic Engineering and Performance Analysis

Course Number: 
TM 614
Introduction to the principles of traffic engineering and performance analysis which play a crucial role in the design, provisioning, measurement, management, and control of modern telecommunications systems. Topics include models for traffic arrival and service processes, superposition and decomposition, traffic burstiness, grade of service (GOS), quality of service (QOS) issues, efficiency, trunk reservation priority, peakedness, interactive systems, throughput/delay tradeoffs, bottleneck analysis, overload performance, and control and buffer management principles. Open, closed, and mixed queuing network flow control models are studied, as well as throughput and delay analysis for controlled and random access LAN.
