Abstract

In this paper we analyze measurements from the Finnish University Network (Funet) and study the effect of spatial aggregation on the origin-destination flows. The traffic is divided into OD pairs based on IP addresses, using different prefix lengths to obtain data sets with various aggregation levels. We find that typically the diurnal pattern of the total traffic is followed more closely by the OD pairs as their volume increases, but there are many exceptions. Gaussian assumption holds well for all OD pairs when the aggregation level is high enough, and we find an approximate threshold for OD pair traffic volume after which they tend to be Gaussian. Also the functional mean-variance relation holds better when the aggregation level is higher.
