In Chapter 1 of Volume-1 we already discussed the physical and data-link layers of the open system interconnection and TCP/IP model in which the theoretical basis is mentioned for successive and reliable transmission of information. The node-to-node transmission in the network depends on characteristics of various media through which this information can be sent. At the same time, it is also required to access the network efficiently. This can be made either in a deterministic fashion or by means of a contention method. In this direction, most analytical models of computer systems and communication networks need queuing theory which is based on waiting-line phenomena [1–3]. Queuing depends on service resources and customer populace. The customers arrive at a system, form a queue and wait for their turn to get the service, and then quit after serviced by the system.
