Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper


Protection reconfiguration for multiple failures in wavelength divison multiplexing (WDM) mesh networks were investigated. Shared path protection (SPP), dedicated path protection (DPP), shared link protection (SLP) and dedicated link protection (DLP) are the four algorithms used for protection reconfiguration. The results show that protection algorithms can provide almost optimal robustness for the networks with reconfiguration. It was suggested that networks must be designed which can degrade the multiple failure scenarios.
