In this paper, communication channels for the transmission of multimedia packets are modeled and evaluated. The multimedia packet traffic characterized by on-off and MMPP process for voice and data, respectively, dynamic channel allocation, queueing of data packets due to unavailability of channels and dropping of queued data packets over timeout, and guard channel for voice packets are modeled. The performance indices adopted in the evaluation of SRN model includes blocking and dropping probabilities. The SRN uses rewards concepts instead of the complicate numerical analysis required for the Markov chain. It is shown that our SRN modeling techniques provide an easier way to carry out performance analysis.
