An approach for obtaining estimation of stability of large communication network taking into account its dependent paths

Boris Melnikov, Yulia Terentyeva
The physical data layer transmits bits over physical communication channels, such as coaxial cable or twisted pair. That is, it is this level that directly transmits data. At this level, the characteristics of electrical signals that transmit discrete information are determined. After that it is necessary to consider the control of the communication network, its various algorithms. When designing a communication network, a prerequisite is to calculate its stability, and in the case of large scale communication networks, this is a big problem.
The most common deterministic, as well as fairly fast approximate method, which is often implemented at the present time, is the method by which the stability of the communication direction which is estimated by analyzing independent paths only. The main disadvantage of this method is obtaining an understated estimate of stability due to unaccountable dependent routes of communication
directions. And this leads to inefficient use of resources. Our proposed methodology allows to take into not only independent paths, but also dependent ones, which is the basis for obtaining a significantly more correct estimate. It is based on an algorithm for checking the presence of a certain path and, based on it, an algorithm for obtaining an exact assessment of stability. The paper also provides analytical and statistical analysis of the considered
algorithms. In particular, a special parameter was introduced
that characterizes the probability of a failure event of communication lines, in which the number of failed communication lines lies in a certain specified range; after which a study of the function describing this parameter was carried out.
