  • MENTour: An algorithm for designing reliable high-speed data networks

    Publication Year: 1995, Page(s):101 - 103
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1210 KB)

    Interactive design is a foundation of a new generation of design tools, such as INTREPID [1] and NETDA/2. Interactive design requires that low-complexity algorithms be able to design realistic networks in minutes or seconds. The MENTOR algorithm has complexity O(n2) and is suitable to a wide variety of networks. However, if link speeds are much greater than the size of requirements, thi... View full abstract»

  • Traffic modelling and design methodologies for broadband networks

    Publication Year: 1995, Page(s):104 - 115

    Designers of modern high-speed complex networks, such as frame relay (FR) and ATM, face three principal areas of difficulty: the need to ensure accurate and efficient traffic modelling; the large number of combinations of control parameter settings that is available; and the rarity of some events which contribute to Quality of Service measures, resulting in a high cost of simulation. This paper sh... View full abstract»

  • Quarts: A test-bed for dynamic routing over ATM networks

    Publication Year: 1995, Page(s):116 - 120
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1452 KB)

    How a path is selected for a call from its source to its destination is one of the key design issues in ATM networks. A routing test-bed is essential to understand a routing (path-selection) algorithm's dynamic behaviour and evaluate its performance. Such a test-bed, called QUARTS, has been built to design routing protocols over ATM networks. QUARTS is a discrete-event-driven test-bed. In QUARTS, ... View full abstract»

  • Remsim: A resource management simulator for ATM networks

    Publication Year: 1995, Page(s):121 - 126

    Fast Resource Management (FRM) has been recommended as one of the mechanisms to control ATM traffic. In this work we present a simulator to analyze the performance of FRM systems. The simulator is based on a library of queuing routines written in C language. It is flexible and can easily be upgraded to include new features. The accuracy of this simulator is verified by an analytical method. View full abstract»

  • Analysis of routing policies in broad-band networks

    Publication Year: 1995, Page(s):127 - 137
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2337 KB)

    This paper derives sequential routing, random alternate routing, least-loaded routing, and minimum cost routing policies for multirate, multipoint broadband networks. These routing policies are obtained by generalizing similar schemes used in circuit-switched networks. Fixed-point performance evaluation algorithms are developed and numerical studies are performed to compare the routing policies in... View full abstract»

  • Optimized design of ring-based survivable networks

    We describe an original method for the automated synthesis of transport network designs based on multiple SONET self-healing rings. A heuristic procedure is based on insights about the trade-off between capacity efficiency and traffic capture efficiency of ring sets to find a minimum-cost composite design. Test cases show designs that range from nearly optimal capacity efficiency to nearly optimal... View full abstract»

  • Multilayer network analysis tool

    As the demand for high-quality broad-band services emerges, the reliability of the asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) network providing these services and the underlying SDH (SONET) network transporting the ATM traffic is an important performance parameter which should be taken into account when planning and designing the network. In this paper a prototype of a multilayer network analysis tool is pr... View full abstract»
