One-to-Many Multicast Restoration Based on Dynamic Core-Based Selection Algorithm in WDM Mesh Networks
Source: Yuan Ze University
This paper proposes a novel Dynamic Core-based Selection (DCS) algorithm for the multicast restoration in WDM mesh networks. The core-based fault tolerance scheme provides a flexible way to control a number of core nodes with less control overheads for searching the Routing path, Wavelength Assignment (RWA) and restoration paths when fault occurs in the one-to-many multicast domain. Compared with the source-based scheme, core-based schemes are easier to maintain, and specifically scalable in large-scale topologies. In the core-based fault tolerance scheme, k-tuple domination nodes are selected to form a minimum sized vertex subset such that each vertex in the graph is dominated by at least k vertices, where the k is defined as two in this paper.
