Abstract

Recently, mobile Internet gained a strong momentum of development, which has led to increasing demand on mobile network traffic characterization and modeling. A good model of mobile network traffic can be used to make accurate prediction regarding various performance metrics. Based on the network trace collected from network backbone, our paper studies mobile network traffic characteristics in terms of the flow arrival numbers and flow connection duration. Basically, we employ the Poisson regression from Generalized Linear Model with time window clustering so as to approximate a time-dependent Poisson Process to the flow arrival process. Our analytical results demonstrate the accuracy of the adopted approach. In addition, through approximating the Phase Type distribution to the heavy-tailed distribution, our paper also models the flow connection duration. The obtained results can help us get a comprehensive understanding of the network performance, in accordance with which the resource usage may be optimized, e.g., we can expand network bandwidth or increase the buffer size when the network arrival is high.
