Summary: 
Recent studies on traffic measurement analysis in the various networks (LAN, MAN, WAN) have shown that packet traffic exhibits Self-Similarity. The packet traffic represents some behavior quite different from what it has been assumed. Some papers reported that Self-Similarity degrades the network performance, such as buffer overflow and network congestion. Thus, we need new network control scheme considering Self-Similar properties. The control scheme requires high-speed calculation method of Hurst Parameter. In this paper, we propose high-speed calculation method of Hurst Parameter based on the Variance-Time Plot method, and show its performance. Furthermore, we try to apply this method to the simple network control, in order to show effectiveness of the network control with Self-Similarity.
