Abstract:

A communication network is composed of communication links and processing nodes. The effective design of a survivable communication network requires a means of determining the structural connectivity of the network both as a whole and with respect to individual resources links and nodes. In this thesis we represent the connectivity evaluation from two perspectives. The first pertains to considerations applicable to the design schema of the network, and the second deals with an improvement of connectivity in an existing network. We then present and analyze a practical synthetic approach to a communications networks survivability profile by using the example of SACS the Saudi Arabian Communication System. Finally, we evaluate the difference between the theoretical and practical approaches to survivability.
