Hierarchical Importance Indices Based Approach for Reliability Redundancy Optimization of Flow Networks

Authors: Kumar Pardeep

In flow networks, it is assumed that a reliability model representing telecommunications networks is independent of topological information, but depends on traffic path attributes like delay, reliability and capacity etc.. The performance of such networks from quality of service point of view is the measure of its flow capacity which can satisfy the customers demand. To design such flow networks, hierarchical importance indices based approach for reliability redundancy optimization using composite performance measure integrating reliability and capacity has been proposed. The method utilizes cardinality and other hierarchical importance indices based criterion in selecting flow paths and backup paths to optimize them. The algorithm is reasonably efficient due to reduced computation work even for large telecommunication networks.
