Even though there have been a number of studies about modeling MINs, almost all of them are for studying the MINs under uniform traffic which cannot reflect the realistic traffic pattern. In this paper, we propose an analytical method to evaluate the performance of ATM switch based on MINs under non-uniform traffic. Simulation results show that the proposed model is effective for predicting the performance of ATM switch under realistic nonuniform traffic. Also it shows that the detrimental effect of hot spot traffic on the network performance turns out to get more significant as the switch size increases.
