Innovation of circuit/path operations in ATM networks: self-sizing network

This paper proposes self-sizing network operations to innovate circuit/path operations in ATM networks. The self-sizing network is a new concept in traffic operations that uses rapid and flexible resource assignment to meet the traffic demand. These operations support functions such as traffic management, resource design, and administration, failure and congestion operations and service operations by making full use of network flexibility and simplification and recent technologies for enlarging system capacity. They are expected to overcome foreseeable future issues, e.g., the varieties of services and the unpredictability of the demand in the future, as well as the complexity of the traffic, circuit, and path dimensioning, and administration based on these issues. In particular, this paper describes the algorithms that adapt VP capacity to traffic in traffic management operations (Step 1) and their system implementations. The implemented system aims at customizing algorithms and encapsulating the components of algorithms and adopts TMN to follow the OSI standard.
