Abstract

This paper provides an accurate model of the General Packet Radio Service (GPRS). GPRS is modeled as a single server queue in a Markovian environment. The queueing performance of data packets is evaluated by matrix geometric methods. The arrival process is assumed to follow a two state Markov modulated Poisson process (MMPP), and the service rate fluctuates based on voice loading. The analytical results are confirmed by simulation.
