In this paper, we analyze the end-to-end delay performance of a tandem queueing system with mobile queues. Due to state-space explosion there is no hope for a numerical exact analysis for the joint-queue length distribution. For this reason, we present an analytical approximation that is based on queue length analysis. Through extensive numerical validation, we find that the queue length approximation exhibits excellent performance for light and moderate traffic load.
