Kist, Alexander A. and Lloyd-Smith, Bill and Harris, Richard J. (2005) A simple IP flow blocking model. In: 19th International Teletraffic Congress (ITC19), 29 August - 2 Sept. 2005, Beijing, China.
Flow based networking can assist in addressing current performance issues in convergent IP networks and enable dynamic, real-time routing. The Scheme for Advanced Overflow Routing (SAPOR) is a method that enables flow based routing in IP networks. This paper presents an analytical model that allows the calculation of overflow probabilities for flows, transmitted via a bottleneck connection. The proposed model is verified by simulation and results are presented. Similar to the Erlang B formula, this proposed model can also be used as a generic flow blocking model, i.e. when call rates (required resources) are drawn from probability distributions.
