The Extended Erlang B Traffic Model is an analytical model for calculating call blocking.
The model makes the following assumptions:
|•||Calls are presented randomly to a trunk group (Poisson arrivals).|
|•||Call times are fixed or are exponentially distributed.|
Unlike the Erlang B Traffic Model, the Extended Erlang B Traffic Model takes into account the extra traffic offered to a trunk group caused by retries; that is, calls which are immediately redialled because they were blocked.
This traffic model may be applied to situations in which no overflow facilities exist.
