Paper Abstract

Fault management in WDM routed all-optical networks has mostly been addressed either by automatic protection switching or through loop-back recovery. These schemes are designed for managing single fault occurrence and generalization method to handle multiple faults are not known. Conventional routing schemes are static in nature (where the routers are programmed to realize the lightpaths between the end-nodes) and hence a fault management scheme needs to find a fault-free path between end-nodes using the settings of the routers. This paper considers the principle of survival route graphs to construct fault-free paths between end-nodes. As a result, the fault avoiding route between two end-nodes might be a multihop route in which the number of hops are limited to reduce the communication delay. The performance degradations of the network because of fault occurrence are studied through simulations and measured in terms of blocking probability and communication delay.
