Analysis of a partially-observed queuing system
AbstractThis paper describes the behavior of communication on a land mobile radio channel and suggests a mathematical model to be used in analyzing such communication. Mobile radio is gaining wide recognition as an important business tool, but its growing use brings the problem of congestion. Although the communication on one radio channel by twelve different companies has the structure of a complex queuing system not all of which can be observed, the paper shows that such communication has some of the behavior of a simple queue. This facilitates the analysis of the radio channel and provides an illustration that models of simple queues may offer a helpful means of analyzing those which are more complicated. Once the situation can be analyzed it becomes possible to try to manage it as effectively as possible. In the case of mobile radio the analysis provides a means of measuring the cost of congestion under alternate circumstances.
