Scarcity of network resources might be caused by reduction in network capacity (e.g., due to a disaster), increase in offered traffic, or both. To combat a disaster, it is important that critical data located in affected areas be evacuated to secure locations. Accordingly, we investigate the use of satellite networks to perform this evacuation. Another situation where network resources can become scarce is when a network is being driven at high utilization levels, leading to congestion situations, called Resource Crunch. Noting that some traffic demands have flexible bandwidth requirements, we study how to increase the carried traffic (and revenue) under Resource Crunch.
Biswanath Mukherjee is Distinguished Professor at University of California, Davis, where he was Chairman of Computer Science during 1997-2000. He received the BTech degree from Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur (1980) and PhD from University of Washington, Seattle (1987). He was General Co-Chair of the IEEE/OSA Optical Fiber Communications (OFC) Conference 2011, Technical Program Co-Chair of OFC’2009, and Technical Program Chair of the IEEE INFOCOM’96 conference. He is Editor of Springer’s Optical Networks Book Series. He has served on eight journal editorial boards, most notably IEEE/ACM Transactions on Networking and IEEE Network. In addition, he has Guest Edited Special Issues of Proceedings of the IEEE, IEEE/OSA Journal of Lightwave Technology, IEEE Journal on Selected Areas in Communications, and IEEE Communications. He has supervised 68 PhDs to completion and currently mentors 14 advisees, mainly PhD students. He is winner of the 2004 Distinguished Graduate Mentoring Award and the 2009 College of Engineering Outstanding Senior Faculty Award at UC Davis. He is co-winner of 10 Best Paper Awards, including three from IEEE Globecom Symposia, four from IEEE ANTS, and two from National Computer Security Conference. He is author of the graduate-level textbook Optical WDM Networks (Springer, January 2006). He served a 5-year term on Board of Directors of IPLocks, a Silicon Valley startup company (acquired by Fortinet). He has served on Technical Advisory Board of several startup companies, including Teknovus (acquired by Broadcom). He is winner of the IEEE Communications Society's inaugural (2015) ONTC Outstanding Technical Achievement Award "for pioneering work on shaping the optical networking area". He is an IEEE Fellow.
