[Abstract]: This paper presents the Poisson Pareto burst process
(PPBP) as a simple but accurate model for Internet traffic.
It presents formulae relating the parameters of the PPBP to
measurable traffic statistics, and describes a technique for fitting
the PPBP to a given traffic stream. The PPBP is shown to
accurately predict the queueing performance of a sample trace of
aggregated Internet traffic. Using the traffic model, we predict
that in few years, efficient statistical multiplexing will lead to
efficient optical Internet.
