In recent years, sophisticated tools borrowed from the arsenal of queueing theory and supply chain management become more and more relevant in the studies of intracellular metabolic networks [12,15,19].
We divide the analysis here into two parts: reviewing the papers that provided analytical models based on the queueing theory and the papers that provided mobility management solutions for cellular networks such as LTE.

Nevertheless, some important elements of queueing theory can be successfully applied in analysis of these RTS.
Since 1970's many attempts have been made for applying the method of maximum entropy in the area of queueing theory. Asars and Petersons [24] provided MEA for single server queueing system in which they considered a system that has a countable set S of possible states with probability p([S.sub.j]) of the occurrence of the state [S.sub.i].
(ii) We apply queueing theory to develop a model coupled with analysis techniques to evaluate performance of the proposed control mechanism for data transmission in sensor Cloud and obtain the significant performance metrics including average queue length, average packet delay, and packet loss probability.
