My understanding is that the Markov Modulated Poisson Process(MMPP) model is used for traffic shaping…not traffic analysis. MMPP takes into account the peakedness of data traffic and the effect of aggregated traffic flows into a single pipe. Simply put MMPP model gives us a method in which we drop packets in order to avoid congestion in a circuit.
It is a great model to use to create an algorithm like Random Early Detection (RED) but nothing in the model tells me how “fat” my pipe should be.
