Traffic Recovery Time Constrained Shared Sub-Path Protection Algorithm in Survivable WDM Networks
Source: Reed Elsevier
With the development of real-time applications, the traffic recovery time, which is defined as the duration between the failure occurrence on the working path and the interruptive traffic has been successfully switched to the backup path, has become the basic Quality-of-Service (QoS) requirement in survivable WDM networks. In this paper, the authors address the problem of shared sub-path protection with considering the constraint of traffic recovery time and propose a new heuristic algorithm called Traffic recovery time Constrained Shared Sub-Path Protection (TC-SSPP) to compute the working path and the Shared-Risk-Link-Group (SRLG)-disjoint backup sub-paths. The main target of their work is to improve the resource utilization ratio and reduce the blocking probability for dynamic network environment.
