    The Markov-modulated arrival process has been widely used in modelling traffic sources. In this paper, we model an input traffic to an ATM switch as a Markov-modulated Bernoulli process (MMBP), and analyse the queuing behaviour of a buffer fed with N identical MMBP sources using a probability generating function coupled with a matrix geometric approach; both the infinite and finite buffer cases are considered. Numerical results for the case of two MMBPs are also presented
