This paper shows that fractional Brownian motion with H<1/2 can arise as a limit of a simple class of traffic processes that we call “scheduled traffic models”. To our knowledge, this paper provides the first simple traffic model leading to fractional Brownnian motion with H<1/2. We also discuss some immediate implications of this result for queues fed by scheduled traffic, including a heavytraffic limit theorem.
