The continuous growth of demand for wireless connectivity has turned bandwidth into a scarce resource that should be carefully managed. A common solution is to assign disjoint portions of the bandwidth to different users, but the portion size decreases as the number of users grows. An alternative solution is to ...
Approximate Mean Waiting Times in Transient GI/G/1 Queues
- Jagerman D.
This paper presents an approximation method for obtaining the probability the server is busy and the mean waiting time as seen by the nth arriving customer for the GI/G/1 queueing system. Thus, transient behavior is the key issue of the method. The approximation consists of a simultaneous pair of recursion ...

TCP congestion control is the primary enabler for the coexistence of multiple application flows on a single link. It is designed to achieve long-term fairness between the multiplexed flows in a fully distributed manner. However, long-term fairness between TCP flows does not always translate into Quality-of-Experience (QoE) fairness between the ...
