Paper Abstract

Corporate telecommunications network designers face a bewildering array of system design options. This range of options is set to increase as new terrestrial and satellite based mobile networking technologies become viable and cost effective. For example, heavily interconnected Low Earth Orbit networks provide the global capability to extend corporate VPNs to a mobile workforce. But how do network designers assess the impact of these system options given various corporate user demand scenarios? This paper draws on recent work at Queen Mary, University of London, supported by the UK Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council, to investigate network modeling for resource management in corporate telecoms networks and satellite inter-networks supporting heterogeneous services. The paper focuses on a novel network modeling process which provides a generic capability for efficiently partitioning user demand onto network topologies.
