The paper is concerned with the characterization of the relationship between topology and traffic dynamics. We use a model of network generation that allows the transition from random to scale free networks. Specifically, we consider three different topological types of network: random; scale-free with /spl gamma/=3; scale-free with /spl gamma/=2. By using a novel LRD traffic generator, we observe best performance, in terms of transmission rates and delivered packets, in the case of random… CONTINUE READING
