When modelling and simulating networked control systems (NCSs) over TCP/IP network protocols, we obtained network traffic data sets with irregular behaviour. Analysing the data sets revealed multifractal network traffic. Typical data sets are given in this paper together with our preliminary analysis. The network architecture and traffic specifications that generated the multifractal traffic are also described in detail.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
