M-Burst: A Framework of SRLG Failure Localization in All-Optical Networks

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Fast and unambiguous failure localization for Shared Risk Link Groups (SRLGs) with multiple links is essential to build fully survival and functional transparent all-optical mesh networks. Monitoring trails (m-trails) has been proposed as an effective approach to achieve this goal. However, each m-trail traverses through each link by constantly taking a WaveLength channel (WL), which causes a significant amount of resource consumption. In this paper, a novel framework of all optical monitoring for SRLG failure localization is proposed. The authors investigate the feasibility of periodically launching optical bursts along each m-trail instead of supervisory light-path to probe the set of fiber segments along the m-trail, aiming to achieve a graceful compromise between resource consumption and failure localization latency.
