Paper Abstract

This paper investigates the various restoration control architectures for photonic transport networks. A comparison of the centralized, distributed and quasi-centralized control schemes is made, while highlighting their respective advantages. An analytical comparison of their real-time span restoration times is performed using a study network, in which the distributed control architectures offering the fastest restoration times. An additional performance metric is proposed, and together with the mean restoration time a further search is made for an optimum control architecture for networks of different sizes and connectivity.
