Abstract: VP reconfiguration is a powerful and flexible tool to cope with traffic changes and/or
equipment failures in ATM networks. In the paper we present an application of a stochastic
optimization algorithm called Simulated Allocation to the problem of VP reconfiguration
in response to traffic shifts. The considered optimization task takes into account the cost of
VPs reconfiguration imposed by changes in VP routing tables, rearrangement and possible
loss of some calls in progress. Numerical results illustrating the effectiveness of the
Simulated Allocation algorithm are given.
