Performability Analysis of TDMA Cellular Systems Based on Composite and Hierarchical Markov Chain Models
Composite Markov chain models are built to study the performability of wireless TDMA system with and without automatic protection switching for the control channel. The models are then decomposed hierarchically. Measures of interest are explicitly given in closed form for the approximate hierarchical models, that are proven to be more robust and less time-consuming without losing accuracy. The presented models are of great interest in wireless network design and operation.
