Abstract | We introduce a binary communication
channel with memory whose noise is generated by
a queue of length K. The queue is operated under
two modes: uniform and non-uniform. The result-
ing noise process is shown to be a stationary and er-
godic Markov source of order K. Analytic expres-
sions for the noise stationary distribution, capacity
and burst frequency of the uniform queue-based chan-
nel are presented. For the non-uniform queue-based
channel, only numerical results are provided. Next,
the capacity and burst frequency of the uniform and
non-uniform queue-based channels are compared with
those of the nite-memory Polya contagion channel
and the Gilbert-Elliott channel.
