In this paper, we present a synthetic traffic model for the Universal Mobile Telecommunication Systems (UMTS) based on measured trace data. The analysis and scaling process of the measured trace data with respect to different bandwidth classes constitutes the basic concept of the UMTS traffic characterization. Furthermore, we introduce an aggregated traffic model for UMTS networks that is analytically tractable. The key idea of this aggregated traffic model lies in customizing the batch

The effectiveness of the customized BMAP for modeling UMTS traffic is illustrated using the synthetic traffic model previously presented. I.
