A stochastic system is considered in equilibrium with N servers, no waiting room, and K classes of customers. A class-k customer requires bk servers and releases them simultaneously after a random period of time. This multiclass blocking system is motivated by loss networks that support a variety of traffic types (e.g., voice, video, facsimile). The effect of increasing the state-dependent arrival rates and the number of servers on the throughputs and blocking probabilities are considered.
