Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) has been expected to be the basis for the next generation communication networks. The point of queuing analysis for ATM networks is to evaluate the behavior of bursty traffic. Periodicity of the traffic is another significant characteristic of some applications, and is difficult to treat by means of evaluating the queuing theories. This report describes between arriving and departing traffic. The results obtained by this method include packet loss rate and queue length distribution. And it is shown that periodic bursty traffic has, in general, moderate queuing characteristics which is between bulk arrival model and M/M/1 model which are too optimistic and too pessimistic, respectively.
