This book presents new tools and concepts for modeling and analysis of wireless Internet traffic. The first part of the book, written for an audience of teletraffic engineers and researchers, offers an in-depth, tutorial style review of mathematical concepts germane to characterization of modern wireless network traffic, covering scale invariance, long-range dependence, heavy-tailed distributions, and fractals and multifractals. Material in this section draws not only on the networking literature, but also on the literature in physics, finance, and economics. The second part of the book focuses on the application of mathematical concepts to wireless TCP/IP traffic; specifically, actual packet level analysis and modeling of wireless traffic trace collected from a fully deployed IEEE 802.11b wireless local area network, collected over a one-year span at the University of Calgary. A mathematical appendix on Bartlett-Lewis cluster processes is included. The book is for wireless teletraffic researchers with only rudimentary knowledge of probability theory. The authors are affiliated with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Calgary, Canada.
