Simulator for Network Reliability Estimation


P. K. Suri, Bharat Bhushan


Vol. 8  No. 7  pp. 260-269


Day to day increase in frequency and complexity of modern systems of telecommunications, information transmission, transportation and distribution give rise to reliability problems. These networks usually have large numbers of computers and each computer is connected by dozens of other computers/terminals. The network, being a large number of computers attached to each other and multiple transmission paths among them cause data transmission congestion and hence delays. Due to this, it becomes difficult for a network to have maintained a reliable operational status. Keeping in view the criticality of each transmission path, a simulator is developed to estimate the reliability of communication network.
