Abstract: We propose a simple and robust automatic strat-
egy for managing SDH/SONET and/or ATM virtual paths in
real time to handle slow traffic variations. It consists of on-line
measurements of offered traffics followed by the design and possi-
ble implementation of a new virtual path network in a repeated
cycle. Methods and parameters for traffic measurements and
network updating are studied and optimised to achieve maximal
traffic carrying capability at minimal cost. Applying our strat-
egy to networks subject to partially unknown, variable traffics
we discover a considerable adaptivity, large savings in transmis-
sion capacity, and a performance far better than achieved by
deterministic management.
