Abstract:

This report develops some approximation techniques for use in communications network design problems which deal with average properties of the network rather than the discrete network structure. Only the architectural issue of backbone network topology - its effect on network Grade of Service and survivability under constrained cost are treated. A new way of thinking about network performance is developed so that survivability-capacity tradeoffs can be made early in the design process. The report is written in a problem solving sequence and results are presented and discussed at each step in the solution process. Author
