The purpose of this paper is to formally describe new optimization models for telecommunicationnetworks with distributed processing. Modern distributed networks put morefocus on the processing of information and less on the actual transportation of data than weare traditionally used to in telecommunications. This paper introduces new approaches formodelling decision support at operational, tactical and strategic levels. One of the mainadvantages of the technological framework we are working within is its inherent flexibility,which enables us to dynamically plan and consider uncertainty when decisions are made.When we present the models, emphasis is placed on the modelling discussions around theshift of focus towards processing, the new technological aspects, and how to utilize flexibilityto cope with uncertainty.
