This paper provides a detailed description of the packet dropping process connected with the buffer overflows in a network node. Namely, we show the formulas for the most important loss characteristics, both in the transient and the stationary regime and then illustrate them via numerical examples. In order to make it possible to obtain the dropping characteristics for strongly autocorrelated arrivals, the Markovmodulated Poisson process is used as a traffic model.
