Abstract

In the case of an existing limited capacity of the system called required system capacity, in this study a new method is presented to determine the disjoint paths to send data from the source to the sink. System reliability is evaluated as the probability that a specified amount of data can be transmitted from a source to a sink through two disjoint paths, subject to a time threshold and a required capacity. In addition, we study the effect of using the proposed method on the reliability evaluation in comparison with other previous methods.
