M/M/1 Model with Unreliable Service

  •  Joshua Patterson, Andrzej Korzeniowski    


We define a new term ”unreliable service” and construct the corresponding embedded Markov Chain to an M/M/1 queue with so defined protocol. Sufficient conditions for positive recurrence and closed form of stationary distribution are provided. Furthermore, we compute the probability generating function of the stationary queue length and Laplace-Stieltjes transform of the stationary waiting time. In the course of the analysis an interesting decomposition of both the queue length and waiting time has emerged. A number of queueing models can be recovered from our work by taking limits of certain parameters.
