Considering queuing systems with multiple servers, this chapter is devoted to present multi-server queues in which packets are served by multiple packets in parallel. There exist various models for multi-server queues depending on the system capacity and population size of the sources. In this chapter, the author will first introduce M/M/c queue with infinite system capacity and infinite population in Section 17.1. Its variant models with finite system capacity and finite population will be sequentially discussed in Sections 17.2 and 17.3. For every queuing model, its behaviors will be presented along with detailed analyses of relevant performance measures.

  • 17.1 M/M/c Queue
