We propose a new approach to the exact performance analysis of a shared buffer ATM multiplexer, which is loaded with mixed correlated and uncorrelated traffic sources. We obtain the joint steady-state probabilities of both states of the input process and the buffer using a one-dimensional Markov chain. From these probabilities we calculate the loss probabilities and the average delays of the correlated and the uncorrelated traffic sources.
