Large Scale Network Design LiveLessons takes you through the concepts behind stable, scalable, elegant network design, including modularity, resilience, layering, and security principles. This livelesson will focus on traditional distributed link state, distance vector, and path vector routing protocols, as well as the basic principles of centralized control planes (such as OpenFlow). A special point will be made of sorting out the relationship between policy and reachability, and where they can best be managed in a large scale network.
Optimum performance is a vital concern for any situation humans are presented with; however, as the complexity increases, such as in large-scale systems, it becomes more difficult to obtain ideal control. Superfunctions and the Optimization of Large-Scale Dynamic Systems presents innovative perspectives on improving the performance of large scale systems affected by human control and provides an overview of how superfunctions enhance systems’ functionality. Focusing on the foundations, design, and operation of superfunctions, this video is a vital resource for researchers, professionals, practitioners, engineers, and educators.
