Executive Summary

Proactive recovery methods from network failures, based on multiple routing configurations, are effective for quick failure recovery, as compared with reactive recovery methods. However, there are two major problems, especially when the authors consider recovering from large-scale network failures: updating interval for recalculation of routing configurations against network growth, and network traffic concentration on specific nodes and links after recovering failures. In this paper, they first propose a light-weight and distributed algorithm for updating routing configurations when new nodes and links join the network, which does not need overall recalculation.
