Abstract

In this paper we investigate the properties of packet losses when packets are transferred using an overlay network. Three packet loss models are established for different packet loss scenarios: random, burst and congestion. Based on these models, it has been shown through simulation that in random and burst packet losses environments the packet loss rate increases as the number of diverse paths increases, whilst the opposite is true in the congestion case. A combined model is presented and then developed to address the situation where the last link of the system experiences different loss patterns to the rest of the network, such as a wireless access link.
