Over the past several years there has been a considerable
amount of research in the field of traffic modelling for
WLANs and Cellular Networks as well as the integration of these networks. To date, the focus of published work has been largely on the operation of delay sensitive calls. Because the voice calls are no longer the only service in wireless and cellular systems, multi-service traffic networks now consist of integrated services with distinctive Quality of Service (QoS) requirements. Therefore, a number of different schemes have been proposed to deal with this problem. Most of these schemes only consider mobility and multi-service traffic characteristics. However, few studies have considered the impact of buffering of voice calls in integrated voice and data services. Therefore, we aim to make a critical investigation of existing traffic models and offer generic traffic schemes for WLAN and Cellular networks in order to analyse the impact of buffering of voice calls in hybrid networks. For this purpose, an analytical model for performance evaluation of a single server network with voice and data traffic is considered. In this system, voice is given priority but can be buffered in a limited way. The analysis shows that this approach can be used in fast mobile systems.
