We demonstrate how one can use the factorization property to derive the queue-length distributions of the discrete-time BMAP/G/1 queues with complex operational behavior during the idle period. The procedure demonstrated in this paper can be applied to the analysis of many other discrete-time BMAP/G/1 queues with more behavioral complexities.
