Abstract

Today, there are many standards that describe the architecture and mechanisms for monitoring and controlling elements of the Carrier Ethernet network, but there is no single methodology and requirements for the control system of such a communication network are not formed. This article proposes a solution to this problem by modeling the process of functioning of a telecommunication network based on this technology to manage its configuration. To create this model, the AnyLogic simulator was selected. The aim of the work is to identify the relationship between the reliability indicators of a telecommunication network based on Carrier Ethernet technology and the process of functioning of the telecommunication network management and recovery subsystems. As well as obtaining the dependence of the availability factor on the duration of the time between failures, the time of failure and on the quantitative characteristics of the configuration of the simulated network fragment. The multi-agent system, which is part of the control system, is in interaction with it. The use of a distributed telecommunications network control facility based on Carrier Ethernet technology at MASU will provide a demonstration of the dynamics of changes in the state of a fragment of a telecommunications network and obtain an estimate of network reliability. The solution to the problem of building the MASU model is based on the use of agent-based modeling, which belongs to the class of agent-based models. The paper uses the provisions of probability theory, control theory and system theory. The novelty of the presented model lies in the selection of a new Carrier Ethernet control object, the selection of an original set of control and management mechanisms for their inclusion in the model, and the use of the mathematical apparatus of agent modeling. Using the presented model to study the functioning of a telecommunication network allows you to track the behavior of each node and each route with its own failure and recovery rates for a network structure of any complexity, and allows you to solve problems associated with determining the length of time to lose connectivity in the route and the duration of the time between failures all routes simultaneously, allows you to form an assessment of network reliability and fault tolerance.
