Bistability in Communication Networks

  title={Bistability in Communication Networks},
  author={Richard J. Gibbens and P. J. Hunt and Frank P. Kelly},
Advances in the technology of modern telecommunications networks have led to considerable interest in schemes which can dynamically control the routing of calls within a network. The aim of such schemes is to adjust routing patterns within the network in accordance with varying and uncertain offered traffics, to make better use of spare capacity, and to provide extra flexibility and robustness to respond to failures or overloads. However, unless care is taken a dynamic routing strategy that… CONTINUE READING
