Sidney I. Resnick (Cornell University)

will speak on:

"Data Network Models of Burstiness"
 (Joint work with Bernardo D'Auria)

 DATE:       Friday, September 23, 2005

 TIME:       11:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.

LOCATION:   Boston University, Kenmore Classroom Building (KCB)

            565 Commonwealth Ave., Boston, Room 106

Abstract:

We review characteristics of data traffic which we term stylized
facts: burstiness, long range dependence, heavy tails, bursty behavior
determined by high bandwidth users, dependence determined by users
without high transmission rates. We propose an infinite source Poisson
input model which accounts for traffic in adjacent time slots. This
model has the ability to account for many of the stylized facts.
