    The Practice of Network Modeling and Design in Commercial Telecommunications Networks

    • Robert Doverspike, presenter, AT&T Labs - Research

    The key to designing carrier telecommunications networks is realistic modeling of network traffic, switching/transport technologies, layering, reliability, restoration methods, and design rules imposed by network operators. In addition, the models vary among various segments of the network, such as a metropolitan area network vs. a wide area (inter-city) network. This talk will provide a glimpse into this practice and the resulting optimization problems.
