Paper Abstract

A multilayer network is a complex system composed of many devices which in turn are composed of many subsystems. A failure event changes the configuration of the multilayer network, triggering recovery at more than one layer. Proving that a circuit will work after provisioning operations is an important step to preventing misconfiguration of network devices. We have been working on implementing the consistency checker for one layer. It creates a network representation and adds changes to the network. To verify operation of the system, graphical representation of packets are exchanged between different ports. To understand such a systems, we describe them with a block diagram representing important resources.
