**A complete and simple solution for a discrete-time multi-server queue with bulk arrivals and deterministic service times.**
*(English)*
Zbl 1041.90010

Summary: A complete distribution for the system content of a discrete-time multi-server queue with an infinite buffer is presented, where each customer arriving in a group requires a deterministic service time that could be greater than one slot. In addition, when the service time equals one slot, a complete distribution for the delay is also presented.
