Such a class of equations has numerous applications in many modern disciplines like wireless networks and communications. This paper has been motivated by an issue considered by Paul E. Wright in [Advances in applied probability, (1992), 986 ô€€€ 1007]. The functional equation obtained there has been solved using elliptic functions and analytic continuation, which in turn lead to the determination of the main unknown. Unfortunately that solution seems to be a bit too general with many technical assumptions. In this paper on one hand, we introduce a solution in the symmetric case using boundary value problem approach. On the other hand, we investigate the potential singularities of the unknowns of the functional equation giving one possible application, and we compute some expectation of interest using the corresponding generating function.}, number={3}, journal={International Journal of Basic and Applied Sciences}, author={El-Hady, EL-Sayed and Forg-Rob, Wolfgang}, year={2015}, month={Jun.}, pages={264–276} }
