Abstract: This paper examines self-similar (or fractal) properties of real teletraffic data over a wide range of time scales. These self-similar properties are very different from the properties of traditional models based on Poisson and Markov-modulated Poisson processes. The algorithms for modelling fixed-length sequence generators that are used to simulate self-similar behaviour of real teletraffic data in IP traffic for wireless networks are developed and applied. Numerical examples and simulation results are provided.

Keywords: modelling; simulation; telecommunications networks; self-similar teletraffic; wireless networks; IP traffic; fractal teletraffic; sequence generators.
