Abstract: We review characteristics of data traffic which we term stylized facts: burstiness, long range dependence, heavy tails, bursty behavior determined by high bandwidth users, dependence determined by users without high transmission rates. We propose an infinite source Poisson input model which accounts for traffic in adjacent time slots. This model has the ability to account for many of the stylized facts.
