More than ever, data networks have demonstrated their central role in the world economy, but also in the well-being of humanity that needs fast and reliable networks. In parallel, with the emergence of Network Function Virtualization (NFV) and Software Defined Networking (SDN), efficient network algorithms considered too hard to be put in practice...

Math heuristics have become an essential component in mixed integer programming (MIP) solvers. Extending generic MIP heuristics, our study outlines generic procedures to build primal solutions in the context of a Branch-and-Price approach and reports on their performance. Rounding the linear relaxation solution of the Dantzig-Wolfe reformulation, w...

The (edge) forwarding index of a graph is the minimum, over all possible routings of all the demands, of the maximum load of an edge. This metric is of a great interest since it captures the notion of global congestion in a precise way: the lesser the forwarding-index, the lesser the congestion. In this paper, we study the following design question...

A routing R of a connected graph G is a collection that contains simple paths connecting every ordered pair of vertices in G. The edge-forwarding index with respect to R (or simply the forwarding index with respect to R) π(G,R) of G is the maximum number of paths in R passing through any edge of G. The forwarding index π(G) of G is the minimum π(G,...

The (edge) forwarding index of a graph is the minimum, over all possible rout-ings of all the demands, of the maximum load of an edge. This metric is of a great interest since it captures the notion of global congestion in a precise way: the lesser the forwarding-index, the lesser the congestion. In this paper, we study the following design questio...

In this paper, we consider the network loading problem under demand uncertainties with static routing, i.e., a single routing scheme based on the fraction of the demands has to be determined. We generalize the class of metric inequalities to the γ-robust setting and show that they yield a formulation in the capacity space. We describe a polynomial...

In telecommunication networks, packets are carried from a source to a destination on a path determined by the underlying routing protocol. Most routing protocols belong to the class of shortest path routing protocols. In such protocols, the network operator assigns a length to each link. A packet going from to follows a shortest path according to t...

We study the problem of reducing power consumption in an Internet Service Provider (ISP) network by designing the content distribution infrastructure managed by the operator. We propose an algorithm to optimally decide where to cache the content inside the ISP network. We evaluate our solution over two case studies driven by operators feedback. Res...

In telecommunication networks packets are carried from a source s to a destination t on a path that is determined by the underlying routing protocol. Most routing protocols belong to the class of shortest path routing protocols. In such protocols, the network operator assigns a length to each link. A packet going from s to t follows a shortest path...

The Autonomous System (AS)-level topology of the Internet that currently comprises 40k ASs, is growing at a rate of about 10% per year. In these conditions, Border Gateway Protocol (BGP), the inter-domain routing protocol of the Internet starts to show its limits, among others in terms of the number of routing table entries it can dynamically proce...

With one third of the world population online in 2013 and an international Internet bandwidth multiplied by more than eight since 2006, the ICT sector is a non-negligible contributor of worldwide greenhouse gases emissions and power consumption. Indeed, power consumption of telecommunication networks has become a major concern for all the actors of...

Les réseaux de communications sont devenus très complexes de nos jours. Cependant, depuis leur tout début avec ARPANET, les chercheurs et les ingénieurs ont conçu plusieurs protocoles aux divers équipements de ces réseaux afin de réduire cette complexité et d'atteindre la meilleure performance possible du réseau. OSPF ("Open Shortest Path First") e...

The Autonomous System (AS) topology of the Internet (up to 61k ASs) is
growing at a rate of about 10% per year. The Border Gateway Protocol (BGP)
starts to show its limits in terms of the number of routing table entries it
can dynamically process and control. Due to the increasing routing information
processing and storage, the same trend is observ...

In a WDM network, setting up a new wavelength in a fiber requires recalibrating the other wavelengths passing through this fiber. This induces a cost (e.g., time, energy, degradation of QoS) that depends nonlinearly on the number of wavelengths using the fiber. When a set of connection requests must change their optical paths in the network (e.g.,...

Grph is an open-source Java library for the manipulation of graphs. Its design objectives are to make it portable, simple to use/extend, computationally/memory efficient, and, according to its initial motivation: useful in the context of graph experimentation and network simulation. Grph also has the particularity to come with tools like an evoluti...

In this paper, we present a mathematical formulation for saving energy in fixed broadband wireless networks by selectively turning off idle communication devices in low-demand scenarios. This problem relies on a fixed-charge capacitated network design (FCCND), which is very hard to optimize. We then propose heuristic algorithms to produce feasible...

Dans un réseau WDM, utiliser une nouvelle longueur d'onde dans une ﬁbre demande à recalibrer les autres longueurs d'ondes. Cela génère un coût (e.g., énergétique) qui dépend non linéairement du nombre de longueurs d'ondes utilisant la ﬁbre. Lorsqu'un ensemble de requêtes doivent changer de chemins optiques dans le réseau (lors d'une opération de ma...

The expansion of the Internet routing system results in a number of research challenges, in particular, the Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) starts to show its limits a.o. in terms of the number of routing table entries it can dynamically process and control. Dynamic routing protocols showing better scaling properties are thus under investigation. How...
