The origin-destination (OD) cycles approach is applied in this paper to heterogeneous networks, with regard to topologies and services. Decomposition of these networks is performed through gateways that are consequently part of OD cycles associated with inter-domain survivable traffic. Route-diverse cycle parts, called Y and X, are defined to establish(More)
Service Convergence is a prospective goal to reach considerable economic benefits in a Multi-Service Network (MSN) environment. Elements such as Multi-Service Provisioning Platforms and Multi-Technology Network Management systems together with suitable MSN modeling are the key underlying components supporting that goal. The paper relates to the framework of(More)
This paper adopts a hierarchical multilayer/ multilevel approach for the allocation, management and control of B-ISDN resources. This approach seems appropriate to present a vertical decomposition of control layers, having different timescales in addition to a horizontal decomposition, derived from the geographical distribution of control units. The paper(More)
We introduce and analyze a general look-ahead approach for Value Iteration Algorithms used in solving Lroth discounted and undiscounted Markov decision processes. This approach, based on the value-oriented concept interwoven with multiple adaptive relaxation factors, leads to accelcrating proccdures rvhich perform better than the separate use of either the(More)
