the access telecommunication network

- What is a network? A collection of equipements and links that aims to enable the customer to reach any possible service she subscribes.
- This is realized by means of a suitable architecture defines how to aggregate links and to organize nodes in order to reduce costs while providing a good quality of service.
- The fixed network is very important with new technologies like optical fiber; the existing Copper network remains a major cost point
- The access network is the part closest to the customer It is very sensitive to the demography & geography and exhibits two major levels of complexity

complexity in cable pathes

- the acces network merges in civil engineering
- equipements are inside or in front of buidings
- cables ly under the pavement or follow the road system
- huge number and a variety of equipments

motorways, national and some secondary roads

The morphology of the road system depends on the scale of analysis since it is designed for various purposes

some challenges for the network operator

- for cost reduction or global planning purposesin adequacy with the topography and population density.
- to analyze large scale networks in a short timefull reconstruction of realistic optimized networks is impossible, partial reconstruction is limited in size.
- to use external public data as inputto compensate for too voluminous databasis, that are not always complete nor reliable and often need dedicated software
- to address rupture situations in technology and architectureby definition no databasis are available and extrapolation from actual situation may be dubious

first positive point

even such complex systems as access networks can be described in a global way by simple and logical principles due to the underlying careful building.

- they can be decomposed in 2 levels sub-networks connecting L(ow) nodes to H(igh) nodes
- a serving zone is associated to each H node with respect to L nodes
- the physical connexion L -> H is achieved according to a "shortest path" rule, which meaning depends on the technology

the interest to build a global vision

- it is questionable to work on detailed analysis with the aim to deduce for the purpose of detailed reconstructions when possible are sometimes used to estimate global behaviour
- allows to simplify the reality only keeping strcturing features
- allows to turn the observed variability and complexity as an advantage
- considering the network areas as a statistical set of realizations of a random network

the "translation" of the problem is easy

apply logical connexion rule to process for node

the simplest 2 levels network as an example

- L and H nodes location as independant Poisson point process in R2 , 2 intensities
- logical connexion rule from L the nearest H euclidian distance defines the serving zone a Voronoï cell
- the physical connexion follows the straight line
- analytical global results for distributions of geometrical features
- distances L -> H as Exp (intensity H)
- action area characteristics : area, perimeter..

a key object : the typical serving zone

The typical serving zone is representative for all the serving zones that can be observed (ergodicity). Efficient simulation algorithms are derived.

a real network involves the road system

- as a support for nodes location
- as a support for physical connections following a shortest path principle

stochastic modelling in realistic settings

with the following methodology

- stochastic models for road systems
- typical cell for nodes located on the road systems
- dedicated simulation algorithm for typical cells
- geometric characteristics are expressed as functionals of the processes and estimated from the content of the typical cell

We focus on the estimation of the distribution length of the shortest path connexions as an example

simple Poissonian models for road systems

Line

Throw lines

Delaunay

Throw points and relate them to their neighbours

Voronoï

Throw points, draw Voronoi tesselation, erase the points

throw points or line in the plane in a random way to generate a "tessellation" that can be used as a road system. More sophisticated models (iterated, aggetagted) are available

models are discriminated by mean values

A stationary model is fully described by its intensity g

why road models ?

- a model captures the structurant features of the real data set
- a "good" choice takes into account the history that created the observed data (ex PDT roads system between towns)
- statistical characteristics of random models only depend on a few parameters
- the real location of roads, crossings, parks is not reproduced …but the relevant (for our purpose) geometrical features of the road system are reproduced in a global way.
- models allow to proceed with a mathematical analysis
- final results take into account all possible realizations of the model
- no simulation is required

the serving zone revisited to incorporate streets

PLCVT Poisson-Line-Cox-Voronoï-tessellation

- H nodes are randomly located on random tessellations (PVT, PDT, or PLT) and not in the plane
- the serving zone has the same formal definition as a Voronoï cell
- the serving zones define a Cox-Voronoï tessellation (PLCVT, PDCVT or PVCVT)

shortest path on streets

Shortest path with PLT model for streets

- H nodes are located on a random tessellation (ex PLT)
- L nodes are located on the same system independantely from H-nodes
- L node belongs to one serving zone and is connected to its nucleus
- the connexion is the shortest path on the road system : edge set of the tessellation

shortest path length C*

- the length of the shortest path to its H node is associated to every L as a marked point process
- "natural" computation simulate the network in a sequence of increasing sampling windows Wn and compute some function of the length of all paths and average

process for H nodes

marked process with path length

representation of the distribution of length C*

- consider the distribution of the path length from a L node conditionned in O
- use Neveu exchange formula for marked point processes in the plane applied to XC and XH
- write the distribution in terms of a H node conditionned in O
- the result
- depends on the inside line system
- does not depend on L nodes process

scaling invariance

for simple tesselations, the statistical properties of functionals of the typical cell only depend on a scale factor k

real networksA synthetic spatial view of real networks is obtained from the identification of 2-level subnetworks and the partitionning of the area in serving zones for every subnetwork. It maps the architecture on the territory (here on Paris).

"Parametric Distance Distributions for Fixed Access Network Analysis and Planning". Gloaguen C, Voss F, Schmidt V, ITC 21, Paris, 2009

the family of parametric densities at work

large scale subnetwork WCS-SAI

the mean area of a typical serving zone = total area /(mean number of WCS); containing an average of 50 km road.

k ~1000 = (total length of road /area) x (total length of road / number H nodes)

medium scale subnetwork SAI-SAIs or SAI-ND

the mean area of a typical serving zone = total area /(mean number of SAI); containing an average of 2 km road.

k ~35 = (total length of road /area) x (total length of road / number H nodes)

small scale subnetwork SAIs-ND

the mean area of a typical serving zone = total area /(mean number of SAI); containing an average of 300 m road.

k ~5 = (total length of road /area) x (total length of road / number H nodes)

global analysis of a network

Partitioned in homogeneous road models

customer-WCS connexion

obtained by convolutions and ponderated average of 2 level subnetworks

no computational time : the time investment comes form the mapping of the architecture on the area, i.e. describing the interweaving of 2 level networks. The models and parameters for the road systems (Excel sheet) are determined once and do not vary in time.

optical gain of the end to end connexions for optical network

the optical fiber gain

depends on the number of nodes and technology

obvious application to optical networks. Given the architecture, the technology (coupling devices, optical losses) and the number of nodes, the probability distribution of the optical gain of the end to end connexion is easily deduced.
