520    In the modeling of Internet traffic model one of the major
       challenges faced is limiting the State-Space Explosion 
       problem in description of superposition of MMPP's. Our 
       main aim is to develop: (1) We propose a technique to 
       approximate the traffic aggregation processes described by
       Markov modulated Poisson processes (MMPP) models, which is
       based on the clustering structure of the time constants. 
       It is found that the decaying time constants of the 
       aggregated traffic process are the products of the 
       eigenvalues of the transition matrix of the individual 
       traffic. If the time constants are well clustered around 
       some representative time constants (RTC's), the 
       corresponding states can be merged in the state space. (2)
       After implementing the clustering algorithm, our second 
       aim is to develop an MMPP traffic model and evaluate the 
       performance of the aggregated MMPP traffic stream 
520    The simulation results show that by aggregating the 
       original traffic stream it is possible to solve the State-
       Space Explosion problem in description of Superposition of
       MMPP's and thus we can describe network traffic in a more 
       efficient way. Therefore, the network performance can be 
       evaluated more efficiently
