I generate 24 numbers using possrnd as below
lambda=50
r = poissrnd(lambda,1,24)
% One output is 47 58 45 52 57 44 53 54 43 48 57 44 69 58 35 66 60 44 47 47 45 48 51 43
Can I use this output as a Possion distributed traffic over 24 hours? I am confused on how to generate a Possion arrival traffic as I see other stuff like creating exponentially distributed RVs and then inter-arrival times, etc. Please advise me

Hi,
For arrival traffic over a single set of 24 hours with mean "lambda", you can use-
r = poissrnd(lambda);
For arrival traffic for 24 separate hours, each with mean "lambda", you can use-
r = poissrnd(lambda,1,24);
For more details regarding the "poissrnd" function or the Poisson distribution in general, please refer to the following documentation
