Abstract

In almost all studied continuous polling systems, the user leaves the system after his service is completed. There are interesting applications, in which the users demand a second service (or more). For example, in a ferry assisted wireless network, for every local data transfer the ferry has to collect the data from the source and then deliver the same to the sink. This type of application can be modeled by polling systems with rerouting. In polling systems with arrivals on a continuum (on a circle), a moving server attends the users as and when it encounters one. When rerouting is supported, after the service is completed, the users can reroute to a different point in the same circle to await another service. We obtain the performance of such a system under quite general conditions, via discretization approach. The results are applied to study a ferry assisted wireless local area network. Our results rely heavily on fixed point analysis of infinite dimensional operators.
