**Abstract:**

In this report a new fast time domain approach for the identification
of ATM-traffic is proposed. The traffic is measured and characterised
by its first and second order statistic moments. A Markov Modulated
Poisson Process (MMPP) is used to capture the information in these two
statistic moments. Since the identification of a general MMPP is time
consuming because of the large computational requirements, a
*circulant MMPP* is used to reduce the computational cost. A
circulant MMPP is an MMPP with a circulant transition matrix. The main
advantages of this approach are the avoidance of inverse eigenvalue
problem and the decoupling of the two statistic moments. Since
ATM-traffic is highly correlated one can expect slowly decaying
autocorrelations, which slows down the time domain identification.
Therefore the autocorrelation is rewritten as a sum of exponentials
using subspace-identification for stochastic linear time invariant
systems. The identification of the second order statistics is
decoupled from the first order statistics and uses 0/1 knapsack
solvers and unconstrained optimisation.
