SOCIO-ECONOMIC IMPLICATIONS ON THE DESIGN OF TELECOMMUNICATION NETWORKS

  • Author / Creator
    Todd, Brody
  • The purpose of this work is to expand the understanding of how to efficiently and effectively plan the buildout and expansion of telecommunication networks. This was done by developing a planning framework that incorporates the full scope of inputs and outputs of the planning process as well as the stakeholders of the buildout process. In order to realize this framework a fulsome multi-period survivable network model was developed to better understand the influences of network augmentation over time. Lastly, a techno-economic planning model was developed that embodied the planning framework by incorporating input beyond just the estimated traffic demand and the corresponding network topology and capacity. The techno-economic model incorporated the user community’s ability to use the network as well as the potential for network stakeholders to influence this ability.
