    We prove two fundamental results in teletraffic theory. The first is the frequently conjectured convexity of the analytic continuation B(x, a) of the classical Erlang loss function as a function of x, x 0. The second is the uniqueness of the solution of the basic set of equations associated with the ‘equivalent random method’.
