Abstract

European projects like Simulation of Enhanced
UMTS Access and Core Network (IST-SEACORN)
proposed a set of enhancements to UMTS. By
considering the deployment scenarios and tele-traffic
parameters from the Vehicular scenario of SEACORN,
a simulator was produced to extract conclusions about
blocking and handover failure probabilities.
Simulation, which consider the burstiness of traffic,
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 ONOFF 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. As the theoretical and the simulation results
agree, the validation was achieved.
