An analysis of the exact delay of a TDMA or a loop communication system with a contiguous output and a Poisson message arrival process is presented. The nonlinear relationship of a contiguous output with arbitrary arrival process can be expressed by an infinite series. In the case of a Poisson message arrival process, the series can be summed to a closed form. The derived result, which is validated by simulation, is a vast improvement over the previously used approximate model of multiple frames with single output. © 1984 IEEE
