Coded Path Protection Part 2: Design, Implementation, and Performance
In this paper, the authors introduced a coding-based proactive network protection scheme, named Coded Path Protection (CPP). In CPP, a backup stream of the primary data is encoded with other data streams, resulting in capacity savings. In addition to being a systematic approach of building valid coding structures, CPP is an optimal and simple capacity placement and coding group formation algorithm. It converts the sharing structure of any solution of a Shared Path Protection (SPP) technique into a coding structure with minimum extra capacity.
