In this Letter, we investigate the loss performance of a discrete-time single-server queueing system with periodic vacations, with which we are often confronted in traffic control, such as cell scheduling or priority control schemes, at ATM nodes. Explicit expressions are derived for the cell loss ratio in terms of the distribution of the buffer contents in an infinite capacity queue.
