We consider a two-station tandem queue with a buffer size of one at the first station and a finite buffer size at the second station. Silva et al. (2013) gave a criterion determining the optimal admission control policy for this model. In this paper, we improve the results of Silva et al. (2013) and also solve the problem conjectured by Silva et al. (2013).
