  • Patent number: 10296677
    Abstract: A system and method for designing a fiber optic network for a plurality of premises in a geographic area that has existing infrastructure where the existing infrastructure can be used as geographic locations for nodes and arcs in the fiber optic network. The method and system receive inputs for the fiber optic network based on allocated bandwidth, the premises in the geographic area and, data indicative of the existing infrastructure that can be used as geographic locations for nodes and said arcs in the fiber optic network, and optimizing geographic locations of nodes and arcs in the fiber optic network relative to said existing infrastructure.

  • Patent number: 8572001
    Abstract: A method for generating a transportation plan. A set of transportation requests are identified. An initial transportation plan having a set of vehicle routes, a set of vehicle schedules, and a set of crew schedules that satisfy the set of transportation requests is created. A set of vehicle routes, a set of vehicle schedules, and a set of crew schedules are simultaneously modified repeatedly using a policy to generate a new transportation plan until an objective is met.
