Paper Abstract

The benefits of restoration in meshed compared to ring based transmission networks are widely accepted and recognized. This article goes a step further and analyzes the benefits of a collaboration between an IP/MPLS and optical restoration. The underlying principle is based on managed control planes and provides substantial cost savings compared to unrelated restoration mechanisms.
