Hierarchical Loss Network Model for Performance Evaluation
Journal : Number: CSHCN TR 2000-1
As networks grow in size, nodes tendto form clusters geographically and hierarchical routing schemes are morecommonly used. Loss network and reduced load models are often used toapproximate end-to-endcall blocking probabilities, and hence, throughput. However so far all workbeing done in this area is for flat networks with flat routing schemes.
