In a telecommunication network system, a scheme for reforwarding call-terminating setup messages (SETUP messages) is used to guard against their loss. We have developed a method for evaluating the loss probability of these reforwarding schemes. We started with a stochastic model in which the messages are reforwarded after a constant time span from the time that the first messages have been forwarded. This model corresponds to the finite-capacity BPP/M/1/m model. We showed a method for calculating the "timeout" probability. We then added an approximate method for calculating the loss probability. Finally, using the proposed methods, we clarified the existence of the best reforwarding timelag.
