A multi-service traffic model is briefly presented, and
its validation is achieved by using event-based simulation results which consider the burstiness of traffic. A simulator was produced to extract conclusions about blocking and handover failure probabilities in a multi-service bursty traffic context. Simulations, were performed for different cases, from single- to multi-service situations, and from absence to presence of
mobility. Besides quality of service results in the air interface, including blocking and handover failure probabilities, the simulator allows for extracting conclusions about the validation of the Bernoulli-Poisson-Pascal model for the computation of the
on/off blocking probability, the ratio between the number of call rejected at the beginning of an on period and the total number of bursts generated during a session. In the single-service case, the theoretical and the experimental values of on/off blocking
probability are close to each other, and there is an almost perfect concordance between theoretical and simulation values when the average sojourn time in cells is equal to the average holding time. In the multi-service case, the behaviour is not exactly the same
but a coherent behaviour is achieved for an average traffic per user up to 0.10 Erl.
