Fostering Ipv6 Migration Through Network Quality Differentials, Roch A. Guérin, Kartik Hosanagar Jun 2010

Fostering Ipv6 Migration Through Network Quality Differentials, Roch A. Guérin, Kartik Hosanagar

Departmental Papers (ESE)

Although IPv6 has been the next generation Internet protocol for nearly 15 years, new evidences indicate that transitioning from IPv4 to IPv6 is about to become a more pressing issue. This paper attempts to quantify if and how such a transition may unfold. The focus is on ``connectivity quality,'' e.g., as measured by users' experience when accessing content, as a possible incentive (or disincentive) for migrating to IPv6, and on ``translation costs'' (between IPv6 and IPv4) that Internet Service Providers will incur during this transition. The paper develops a simple model that captures some of the underlying interactions, and ...


Product Line Design And Production Technology, Serguei Netessine, Terry A. Taylor Jan 2007

Product Line Design And Production Technology, Serguei Netessine, Terry A. Taylor

Operations, Information and Decisions Papers

In this paper we characterize the impact of production technology on the optimal product line design. We analyze a problem in which a manufacturer segments the market on quality attributes and offers products that are partial substitutes. Because consumers self-select from the product line, product cannibalization is an issue. In addition, the manufacturer sets a production schedule in order to balance production setups with accumulation of inventories in the presence of economies of scale. We show that simultaneous optimization of the product line design and production schedule leads to insights that differ significantly from the common intuition and assertions in ...
