In this paper we study the asymptotic behavior of the tail of the stationary backlog distribution in a single server queue with constant service capacity c, fed by the so-called M/G/∞ input process or Cox input process. Asymptotic lower bounds are obtained for any distribution G and asymptotic upper bounds are derived when G is a subexponential distribution. We find the bounds to be tight in some instances, e.g. when G corresponds to either the Pareto or lognormal distribution and c − ρ < 1, where ρ is the arrival rate at the buffer.
