A Model for Endpoint Admission Control Based on Packet Loss
Endpoint admission control solutions, based on probing a transmission path, have been proposed to meet quality requirements of audio–visual applications with little support from routers. In this paper we present a mathematical analysis of a probe–based admission control solution, where flows are accepted or rejected based on the packet–loss statistics in the probe stream. The analysis relates both system performance to the design parameters, and the experienced probe packet loss probability to the packet loss probability of accepted flows. The goal is to provide a simple mathematical method to perform network dimensioning for admission control based on end–to–end probing.
