Abstract:

The report discusses the relationship between traffic, routing, throughput and cost in store-and-forward computer networks. A powerful set of computer programs to optimize cost and performance are described and the results of a study to derive estimates of optimum performance for specified networks are discussed. The tradeoffs between cost and throughput as a function of the number of nodes in the network are displayed, and the substantial cost advantages of large computer-communication networks demonstrated.
