Research output: Contribution to journalConference articleOther


This paper considers a business model that involves two layers in the telecommunications capacity market: wholesaler and retailer. It introduces a new reliability measure to benefit network retailers. Unlike previously proposed measures, the measure considers further service degradations once the network is disconnected. This measure can be used, in principle, by the network retailer to select an optimal set of paths in order to achieve a desired compromise between cost and reliability.
