NTT develops bio-inspired algorithm for network virtualization


Nippon Telegraph and Telephone (NTT), Osaka University, and the University of Electro-Communications (UEC) have developed a biologically-inspired “yuragi” (fluctuations) algorithm for virtual network control technology, enabling recovery from large-scale disaster and congestion.

Biological systems, which have complex structures, are driven by fluctuations in response to environmental changes while maintaining lower power consumption. Osaka University has a worldwide reputation for the application of the “yuragi” algorithm to artificial systems.

With the technology, NTT said it can provide the rapid recovery of a network service in case of unexpected disasters or congestions. This achievement was in part supported by the Strategic Information and Communications R&D Promotion Program of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications, Japan.

A congestion avoidance experiment using the technology will be presented at the JGN-X demonstration event sponsored by the National Institute of Information and Communications Technology (NICT), Feb 5-7.

In the demonstration, video streaming traffic will be transferred from Okinawa to Sapporo on JGN-X, and NTT hopes to confirm the rapid recovery from congestion caused by additional background traffic.

    Can we actually get some analysis on this release?

    What is the algorithm type? From IEEE sources, it seems that it's just a regular old genetic algorithm that has active and dormant genes rather than full expression. How it it different?

    How does this fit into anything, considering it's a separate system that in itself requires bandwidth?

    Far too many unanswered questions here, hopefully they can do some actual reporting on it at some other date
