Abstract:

New research results on the following major questions are reported Methodology and algorithms for mixed terrestrial-satellite network design are developed. Simple cost functions for mixed network design are proposed and demonstrated to be good estimates. The algorithms are applied to AUTODIN 2 data and sensitivity to variations in cost, traffic level, and other design parameters are presented. A procedure for minimum cost design and for analysis of nonhierarchical circuit switched networks is presented. The problem of connectivity in mobile packet radio networks is solved and implications for predictable networks outlined. Approximate analytical models for initialization of packet radio networks are presented, initialization time is estimated, and operating parameters to obtain minimum initialization time are derived.
