Delivery of multimedia services poses a number of technical problems related to quality of service. The underlying transport network should guarantee, e.g., required bit rate, end-to-end delay, delay variation and error ratio performance, for each tributary of a service stream. Time critical components, such as voice and video, presume that the delay and its variation stay within specified limits regardless of the type of other traffic in the network or regardless of the number of network nodes traversed en route. This paper presents a simulation model for studying delay variation of constant bit rate traffic in presence of interfering back-ground load.
