Reducing vulnerability of shared-path protection subject to double-link failures in WDM mesh networks

Reducing vulnerability of shared-path protection subject to double-link failures in WDM mesh... Shared-path protection (SPP) is a capacity- efficient mechanism to provide 100% single-link failure protection in WDM mesh networks. After the first link failure, however, if reconfiguration is unavailable, a second link failure may lead to tremendous service interruption. Vulnerability of a link is the percentage of links that are vulnerable to the arbitrary second link failure after the link failed and network vulnerability is defined as the average vulnerability of links in the network. In this article, we present three policies that can reduce network vulnerability by reducing backup sharing in shared-path protection. The first policy tries to restrict the times of sharing a wavelength-link by connections. The second policy tries to avoid backup sharing on highly vulnerable links. The third policy tries to avoid backup sharing on highly vulnerable wavelength-links. Algorithms to implement these policies based on a similar framework are presented. Numerical results suggest that there is a trade-off between capacity efficiency and network vulnerability in all the three policies. The third policy can deliver a better performance in terms of blocking probability and network vulnerability. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Photonic Network Communications Springer Journals

Abstract

Shared-path protection (SPP) is a capacity- efficient mechanism to provide 100% single-link failure protection in WDM mesh networks. After the first link failure, however, if reconfiguration is unavailable, a second link failure may lead to tremendous service interruption. Vulnerability of a link is the percentage of links that are vulnerable to the arbitrary second link failure after the link failed and network vulnerability is defined as the average vulnerability of links in the network. In this article, we present three policies that can reduce network vulnerability by reducing backup sharing in shared-path protection. The first policy tries to restrict the times of sharing a wavelength-link by connections. The second policy tries to avoid backup sharing on highly vulnerable links. The third policy tries to avoid backup sharing on highly vulnerable wavelength-links. Algorithms to implement these policies based on a similar framework are presented. Numerical results suggest that there is a trade-off between capacity efficiency and network vulnerability in all the three policies. The third policy can deliver a better performance in terms of blocking probability and network vulnerability.
