In this paper we develop a simple and accurate analytical technique to determine the loss probability at an access node to an asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) network. This is an important problem from the point of view of admission control and network design. The arrival processes we analyze are the Markov-modulated Poisson process (MMPP) and the Markov-modulated fluid (MMF) process. These arrival processes have been shown to model various traffic types, such as voice, video, and still images,doi:10.1109/infcom.1996.493349 dblp:conf/infocom/ShroffS96 fatcat:ygllof2dvfgu7mkf4c7sabtyla
