The burst size of each TBF is assumed to be the packet number that can be transmitted at the average rate over 500ms [28].
Our analysis and numerical study show that the dynamics of the model is largely determined by the viral burst size b and parameters related to the innate immune response.

The rise period was between 19 and 40 min and the burst size was between 89 and 631 virions per infected cell for all the phages.
In this section, it is assumed that burst sizes increase linearly, equivalent to the case of CBR traffic arriving to the buffer and for which there is no variation in the burst size [L.sub.burst].
