With the large-scale deployment of optical network equipments, the problems of separated domains management and the multi-domain-based survivability have become the primary challenge in new generation intelligent optical networks. Aimed at resisting multi-link failures in multi-domain optical networks (MDON), a heuristic multi-link fault-tolerant (MLFT) algorithm for survivability in MDON is proposed in this article, which applied Hamiltonian cycle protection and segment-shared protection to establish a novel survivability strategy for either intra-domain’s or inter-domain’s multiple links, respectively. Furthermore, a new virtual-link mapping scheme and link-cost formulas are presented to encourage the appropriate routing selection and load balancing, which can also contributed to better resource utilization ratio and blocking ratio. Simulation results show that MLFT realizes the multi-link fault-tolerant survivability at a lower cost with better performances in redundancy ratio, blocking ratio, and computation complexity.
