Abstract:

The purpose of the note is to discuss the properties of a single link in a Packetized Virtual Circuit PVC network under a load consisting of a combination of voice and data traffic. Such properties as the mean waiting time for data packets, overall line utilization, and required amount of buffering are investigated as a function of the percentage of the channel dedicated to voice. A combination of simulation and analytic techniques have been used to obtain the results described here. These results indicate the possibility of achieving line utilizations of up to 98, within quite practical values of buffering, and packet delay.
