In this paper an analytical queueing model is proposed based on our study of the code distribution and especially in the integrated or in-band code distribution systems with active networks. By using this model the system performance and reliability can be evaluated so as to provide insights into their behaviour. Since there are different proposals for the code distribution reported recently, it is significnat to provide a technique to find an optimal decision in the network design. A procedure to help for this decision is presented. Some numerical results of using our performance model and decision procedure ar also demonstrated in the paper.
