Summary: 
In this paper, we propose the use of a discrete-time connection oriented Internet service system with a release delay for broadband, high-speed, high-capacity and high-reliability Internet requirements. The release delay called close-delay is set before the release process of a connection. An upper limit length T called timer length is set as a system parameter for the close-delay period. We build a batch arrival Geom*/G/1 queue model with a setup/close-delay/close-down strategy to characterize the system operation. By using a discrete-time imbedded Markov chain approach, we derive the stationary distribution of the system, and present the formula for Probability Generation Functions of the queue length, waiting time, busy period and busy cycle. Correspondingly, we describe the performance measures for the packet response time, setup ratio, and utility of connection. We also develop a cost model to determine the optimal timer length and its expected optimal cost. Based on numerical results, we discuss the influence of the timer length for the close-delay period on the system performance and investigate the minimum timer length and the minimum cost for different offered loads and different burst degrees, and show that the choice of the timer length is significant in improving the system performance.
