As a basis for meaningful simulation and optimization efforts with regard to traffic engineering or energy consumption in telecommunication networks, suitable models are indispensable. This concerns not only realistic network topologies but also models for the geographical distribution and the temporal dynamics of traffic, as well as the assumptions on network components and technology. This paper derives such a model from the practice of a large national carrier. Applying the network and… CONTINUE READING
