A method is proposed to estimate traffic matrices in the presence of long-range dependent traffic, while the methods proposed so far for that task have been designed for short-range dependent traffic. The method employs the traffic measurements on links and provides the maximum likelihood estimate of both the traffic matrix and the Hurst parameter. It is “blind”, i.e. it does not exploit any model neither for the traffic intensity values (e.g. the gravity model) nor for the mean- variance relationship (e.g. the power-law model). In the application to a sample network the error on traffic intensities decays rapidly with the traffic intensity down to below 30%. The estimation error of the Hurst parameter can be reduced to a few percentage points with a proper choice of the measurement interval.

Abstract

A method is proposed to estimate traffic matrices in the presence of long-range dependent traffic, while the methods proposed so far for that task have been designed for short-range dependent traffic. The method employs the traffic measurements on links and provides the maximum likelihood estimate of both the traffic matrix and the Hurst parameter. It is “blind”, i.e. it does not exploit any model neither for the traffic intensity values (e.g. the gravity model) nor for the mean- variance relationship (e.g. the power-law model). In the application to a sample network the error on traffic intensities decays rapidly with the traffic intensity down to below 30%. The estimation error of the Hurst parameter can be reduced to a few percentage points with a proper choice of the measurement interval.
