Abstract: We study the analysis of switches or routers in a network to determine sufficient link capacities that can guarantee small loss probabilities as a main quality of service requirement.
The bufferless case is considered, motivated by far simpler analysis as compared to queueing models but also by the proven inefficiency of buffering to achieve low cell or packet loss rates in the presence of real-time constraints and/or long range dependencies in the development of the traffic load, whereas statistical multiplexing can provide quality of service at reasonable bandwidth utilization even without buffering.
Summary in Swedish: Pappret motiverar användandet av ett kapacitetsberäkningsmodell som inte tar hänsyn till buffrar av betydande storlek i nätverket. Det visar att deras inflytande på bandbreddsbesparingen är ändå så pass lite att man i princip inte alls behöver modellera de.
