  1. J. Virtamo and S. Aalto, Remarks on the effectiveness of dynamic VP bandwidth management, COST257, TD(97)15, 1997 (pdf)(bib)
    Abstract: In report COST257TD(97)14 we considered the technical problem of calculating the time dependent blocking probabilities for the dynamic VP bandwidth management scheme developed by Mocci et al. In this scheme, the bandwidth allocation for various VP's are updated at regular time intervals. At the beginning of an interval the system occupancy is observed and new VP capacity allocation is done in such a way that the expected time average of the blocking probability in the ensuing interval will be less than a predefined limit. In this report we assess the advantages and disadvantages of the scheme trying also to give a quantitative idea about the savings that can be achieved.
