Recent work has shown that there exists burstiness characteristic (i.e. time-varying arrival rates) in multimedia traffic. It is important to understand the performance of interconnection networks in the presence of this kind of traffic. However, simulation-based approaches may be costly and time-consuming. This paper proposes a new analytical model for adaptive wormhole-routed torus network with interrupted Poisson process (IPP) input traffic. The validity of the model is demonstrated by comparing analytical results to those obtained through simulation experiments.
