**Abstract:**

In this paper a new approach to the modelling 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 stochastic
moments. Instead of a general MMPP, a *circulant MMPP* is used
to reduce the computational cost. A circulant MMPP (CMMPP) is an MMPP
with a circulant transition matrix. The main advantages of this
approach are that the eigenvalue decomposition is a Fast Fourier
Transform and that the optimisation towards the two stochastic moments
is decoupled. Based on these properties, a fast time domain
identification algorithm is developed.
