An Integrated Model of Traffic, Geography and Economy in the Internet
Modeling Internet growth is important both for understanding the current network and to predict and improve its future. To date, Internet models have typically attempted to explain a subset of the following characteristics: network structure, traffic flow, geography, and economy. In this paper we present a discrete, agent-based model, that integrates all of them. We show that the model generates networks with topologies, dynamics, and more speculatively spatial distributions that are similar to the Internet. Categories and Subject Descriptors C.2.1 [Computer-Communication Networks]: Network Architecture and Design General Terms Agent-based model, Mechanistic model, time evolution, emergent properties. Keywords Internet, complex networks, Autonomous System, networks.
