Intercycle switching (ICS)-based dynamic reconfiguration of p-cycle for dual-failure survivability of WDM networks

Intercycle switching (ICS)-based dynamic reconfiguration of p-cycle for dual-failure... Today, the most promising technique used for the survivability of optical transport networks is p-cycle. However, it provides longer restoration path at failure state of the network. The intercycle switching (ICS) is one of the recent approaches that is based on idle p-cycles and is used for shortening the length of restoration path in single-fault model. Utilization of idle p-cycles degrades the inherent dual-failure restorability of single-failure design model of p-cycle, whereas ICS releases the maximum portion of conventional restoration path by utilizing a small segment of the idle p-cycle. Here, the authors proposed a new approach to reconfiguring the released portion of restoration path and unused segment of corresponding idle p-cycle as new cycle(s). In respect of idle p-cycles, the new reconfigured cycle(s) provides more dual-failure restorability in single-failure design of p-cycle. Therefore, the proposed approach mitigates the above-said drawback of ICS and minimizes additional spare capacity requirement for dual-failure survivability.
