Abstract

In designing a telecommunications network, nodes that represent telephone exchanges or communications switching centres need to be connected in an economical way to handle expected point-to-point traffic. Various constraints on the topology and node and link capacities must to be respected. Two methods are investigated for optimal network synthesis. The first is an heuristic which rapidly obtains a solution of moderate quality.Te second is a fast genetic method which can produce significantly better solutions.
