Executive Summary

The growth of the Internet and emerging application layer technologies causes numerous changes in network environments. Therefore, it becomes important to achieve adaptive methods of controlling networks in addition to optimizing their performance. To achieve an adaptive network control method, the authors focus on attractor selection, which models behaviors where biological systems adapt to unknown changes in their surrounding environments and recover their conditions. In this paper, they show the applicability of the attractor selection to the adaptive Virtual Network Topology (VNT) control in IP over wavelength-routed WDM networks.
