Modelling and Performance Evaluation of Wireless Networks
Integration between voice services and data services brought about new concepts in modelling and performance evaluation of wireless networks. In this paper it is proposed a new approach to deal with that putting together a formal method called Statecharts and a Continuous Time Markov Chain (CTMC). From the specification of the system made in Statecharts it is automatically generated a CTMC, and then evaluated the performance measures. The advantages of this technique are better representation of the behavior of the system without ambiguity and with consistency.
