In this paper we examine an existing model of composable internet switches from which statistical guarantees of service can be obtained. We then present some small analysis to show how the model can be implemented so that its assumptions, in this case about Markovian traffic streams, are in fact properties of the implementation. In order to achieve this we need to constructa box which makes the traffic streams Markovian.
