Survivability in multi-domain optical networks using p-cycles

Abstract : Survivability is becoming an important issue in optical networks due to the huge bandwidth offered by optical technology. Many works have studied network survivability. The majority of these works are destined for single-domain networks. In this work, we address the survivability of multi-domain optical networks. This paper provides a classification of the existing protection solutions proposed for multi-domain networks and analyses their advantages and limitations. We propose a new solution for multi-domain optical networks based on p-cycles (pre-configured cycles). For scalability and security reasons, we also propose a topology aggregation model adapted to p-cycle computations. This aggregation model allows our proposed solution to find a trade-off between two competing goals: efficient use of backup resources and short running time. Simulation results show that the proposed solution is a good trade-off between resource utilization and running time compared to existing solutions.
