This paper presents a new approach for sparecapacity assignment in mesh-type self-healing networks which use reconfigurable network elements as transmission hubs. Under this approach the process of reducing total weighted cost of spare capacity is obtained by taking into account all network’s eligible restoration routes which do not violate a predetermined(More)
Abstract: 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(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)
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)

The development of multiservice provisioning platforms and multitechnology network-management systems augment the need for advanced network tools to accommodate effectively the complex task of managing devices, systems and services that are supported by the network. Assignment of common transport network resources for the proper functionality of the(More)
Converged telecommunication networks, which simultaneously support a growing variety of services through a common network infrastructure, are aimed at significantly reducing network expenditures. This trend has encouraged the development of a unified network paradigm capable of supporting a wide variety of cost-effective recovery solutions, each of which(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 time-scales in addition to a horizontal decomposition, derived from the geographical distribution of control units. The paper(More)
