DCN Connectivity

In Experiment 4, the connectivity of the DCN was gradually increased. The sizes of the OTN/DCN pairs generated were held constant. The pure-random model was used for generating edges with edge probabilities set to 0.13 for the OTN and varied for the DCN. At every run, the edge probabilities for the DCN were doubled. As seen from Figure 10, parallel activation schemes exhibit stable scaling performance as compared to serial schemes. Again, OBS-based schemes outperform their non-OBS counterparts.
