Abstract: The modern communication system is growing at an alarming rate with fast growth of new technologies to meet current and future demands. While the development of devices and technologies to improve and meet the expected communication demands keeps growing, the tools for their effective and efficient implementations seem to be lagging behind. On one hand there is a tremendous development and continued advancement of techniques in Operations Research (OR). However it is surprising how the key tools for efficiently optimizing the use of the modern technologies is lagging behind partly because there isn’t sufficient cooperation between core OR researchers and communication researchers. In this position paper, using one specific example, we identify the need to develop more efficient and effective OR tools for combined queueing and optimization tools for modern communication systems. OR scientists tend to focus more on either the analysis of communication issues using queueing theory tools or the optimization of resource allocations but the combination of the tools in research have not received as much attention. Our position is that this is one of major areas in the OR field that would benefit communication systems. We briefly touch on other examples also. (More)
