Internship at INRIA Rocquencourt

Bandwidth Allocation Algorithms in WDM PON (Passive Optical Networks).

Research team

RAP (Réseaux, algorithms et probabilités) see: https://www-roc.inria.fr/rap/

Among other subjects, RAP performs research on resource management in communication networks.

Research Context

Because of their very high bandwidth optical networks are playing a more and more

important role in the design of future network architectures (like FTTH). These networks

are posing a set of challenging problems in the domain of bandwidth allocation:

how to

allocate dynamically optical paths in an optimal way for example.

Contribution of the intern

The program of the intern is in a first step to investigate some bandwidth allocation algorithms with cyclic scheduling and to investigate the main performance

issues of these algorithms. The main part of the work will be devoted to the design

and the analysis of optimal algorithms in the context of a very large network.

Skills and profile of the candidate

The intern will have strong motivation for algorithm design of network algorithms and for analyzing the performance of stochastic systems.
