  • Publication number: 20210111944
    Abstract: A network control device includes a storage and a processor. The storage stores an identifying value and a severity value for each of network elements. The identifying values are hierarchized based on inclusion relationships between the network elements. The severity values respectively indicate a severity in sharing a risk of a failure in the network elements. When first and second paths are designated, the processor detects, for each of a plurality of target identifying values corresponding to a plurality of network elements implementing the first path, a longest matched identifying value having a longest region matching the target identifying value from among a plurality of identifying values corresponding to a plurality of network elements implementing the second path. The processor calculates a sum of severity values corresponding to the detected longest matched identifying values, and evaluates the second path for the first path based on the sum.

  • Publication number: 20200247267
    Abstract: A charge control device includes: a voltage generator which receives an input voltage and generates an output voltage; a power feeding circuit which supplies the output voltage to a terminal via a voltage supply line; and a control circuit. The control circuit is configured to make the power feeding circuit supply the output voltage when a value of the input voltage or the output voltage is equal to or higher than a first threshold value; electrically cut off the supply of the output voltage by the power feeding circuit when the value of the input voltage or the output voltage is less than the first threshold value; and resume the supply of the output voltage by the power feeding circuit when the value of the input voltage or the output voltage returns to be equal to or higher than the first threshold value.
