Performance evaluation of computer and communication networks gives rise to tele­
traffic problems of potentially large dimensionality. We briefly summarize a unifying
system theoretic approach to efficient solution of a diversity of such problems, and
introduce TELPACK, a publicly available software that implements this approach.
Performance evaluation problems arising in the study of telecommunication networks basi­
cally consist of two components: traffic modeling and queueing analysis. Traffic is the driving
force behind all telecommunications activity, and their models are of crucial importance for
evaluating network performance [12]. Probability models for traffic streams are needed to
the extent that they allow prediction of system performance measures to a reasonable degree
of accuracy. The fundamental systems in telecommunication networks, of which traffic is
the major constituent, are queueing systems, and their numerical analysis provides various
system performance measures if a suitable traffic model is available.
