Abstract

This paper investigates blocking probabilities obtained from multidimensional truncated Poisson distributions. For blocking probabilities typically arising in layered cellular mobile communications networks, the large deviations results of Gazdzicki et al. [9] are extended to state spaces determined by multiple constraints. The results yield asymptotically exact expressions that provide an accurate approximation of probabilities up to 1%, which considerably extends the applicability of large deviations results and enables efficient approximation of blocking probabilities for realistic mobile communications networks.
