Blocking policies for networks of finite capacity quasi-reversible nodes

Activity: Talk or presentationOral presentation


We consider a network of multiple nodes. Customers of different types arrive according to Poisson processes and follow a fixed type-dependent route along some of the nodes. We consider nodes with finite capacity under two blocking policies: the jump-over protocol, under which an arriving customer that finds all capacity occupied jumps over the nodes to the next node on its route, and the push-out
protocol under which a customer that finds all capacity occupied pushes a customer in service out of the node and this customer immediately continues its route to the next node on its route. We show that a node that is quasi-reversible for unlimited capacity remains quasi-reversible for finite capacity.
