Consider a set of points and an associated demand for traffic between each pair of points. In this thesis, we consider the perspective of a notional Network Service Provider (NSP) who has to decide on the connections to build and the demands to satisfy in order to maximize its profits. The NSP makes these decisions based on the demand for connectivity and the constraints on their resources needed to provide the connections. We perform numerical experiments to study the tensions faced by the NSP in its decisions to structure its service network. Through the results generated, we infer how demand, revenue and cost influence the decisions of the NSP.
