Description

A mathematical model is developed for the reliability of a system made up of m unreliable nodes arranged in a ring. The model can be used to calculate the reliability of single-ring networks where the network recovery mechanism depends on bypassing failed stations, but link signal power margins are inadequate to overcome losses due to more than n bypass switches in series. Computational complexity is O(n2m + nm2/2) in time, and O(m2/2) in memory requirements.
