Design Method of Logical Topologies with Quality of Reliability in WDM Networks

Design Method of Logical Topologies with Quality of Reliability in WDM Networks As the bandwidth capacity of WDM networks continues to grow rapidly,traffic loss caused by a failure of network components is becoming unacceptable. To prevent such traffic loss and thus enhance network reliability, a protection method that prepares backup lightpaths for each working path is now being developed. In this paper, we first introduce the concept of QoR (quality of reliability), which is a realization of QoS with respect to the reliability needed in a WDM network. We define QoR in terms of the recovery time from when a failure occurs to when traffic on the affected primary lightpath is switched to the backup lightpath. After that, we propose a heuristic algorithm that can be used to design a logical topology that satisfies the QoR requirement for every node pair. The objective is to minimize the number of wavelengths needed for a fiber in the logical topology to carry the traffic with the required QoR. We compare this algorithm with two existing algorithms and show that it enables more effective use of wavelength resources; with the proposed algorithm, up to 25% fewer wavelengths are needed than with the other algorithms. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Photonic Network Communications Springer Journals

Abstract

As the bandwidth capacity of WDM networks continues to grow rapidly,traffic loss caused by a failure of network components is becoming unacceptable. To prevent such traffic loss and thus enhance network reliability, a protection method that prepares backup lightpaths for each working path is now being developed. In this paper, we first introduce the concept of QoR (quality of reliability), which is a realization of QoS with respect to the reliability needed in a WDM network. We define QoR in terms of the recovery time from when a failure occurs to when traffic on the affected primary lightpath is switched to the backup lightpath. After that, we propose a heuristic algorithm that can be used to design a logical topology that satisfies the QoR requirement for every node pair. The objective is to minimize the number of wavelengths needed for a fiber in the logical topology to carry the traffic with the required QoR. We compare this algorithm with two existing algorithms and show that it enables more effective use of wavelength resources; with the proposed algorithm, up to 25% fewer wavelengths are needed than with the other algorithms.
