Risk Evaluation In Broadband Telecommunications Planning Under Services' Imprecise Penetration - A Fuzzy Approach
Ieee International Conference On Fuzzy Systems. , v. 2, n. , p. 601 - 605, 2001.
Telecommunications operating companies are asked to provide new services for the short- and medium-term. Therefore, their systems and infrastructure must evolve in order to support these services. Several technological options are already available and to choose the best among them is a big challenge for network planners. This work proposes a mixed-integer linear programming model devoted to help the planning of the so-called access network, which links the clients to the core of the telecommunications systems. The model is driven by max-revenue criterion and focuses on the network evolution under the assumption of imprecise estimates concerning services' penetration rates. In order to perform some techno-economical risk analyses, fuzzy sets concepts are adopted. An application that uses actual data is reported.2601605Humphrey, M., Freeman, J., How xDSL supports broadband services to the home (1997) IEEE Network, 11, pp. 14-23. , January/FebruaryCook, A., Stern, J., Optical fiber access - Perspectives towards the 21st century (1994) IEEE Comm.
