  • Sure, the motivation for developing this automation was the emergence of potentially complex topologies like Mars relay and (in a few years) the Constellation network around the moon -- the procedural, manual approaches of the last few decades don't scale up well -- but once you've developed that automation it can be applied to reduce cost in all kinds of missions that don't involve multiple spacecraft.

  • FiOS topologies (fiber to the home) may not necessarily help out unless of course they explicitly included backhaul routes or are near backhaul routes (tower to CO) … Metro fiber topologies matter more in LTE/mobile-data backhaul. dunno if Verizon is any better placed than AT&T here. who knows maybe old MFN or American Fiber Systems may have more fiber near potential LTE backhaul sites.

  • "It is mathematically possible for the universe to be spatially flat and yet finite (as explained by for example Heckmann and Schücking (1962, 441-2)), but such non-standard topologies are usually rejected by physicists."

  • As virtual machine topologies form to meet demand, VCS makes sure that each VM gets the appropriate port profile regardless of where the VM is located.

  • However, we have seen many network topologies, especially highly redundant ones with embedded firewalls, where you'd end up buying a lot of appliance to make this work — if you could make it work at all.
