Paper Abstract

Generalized Multiprotocol Label Switching (GMPLS), which is developed to support common control of packet, TDM, wavelength, and fiber services, is the key enabler of the new network model. The survivability of IP over WDM networks gains importance as network traffic keeps growing. In this paper, we propose an integrated provisioning scheme to dynamically allocate Label Switched Paths (LSPs) in IP over WDM networks. This scheme takes advantage of information sharing between layers (e.g., link state information, bandwidth usage, and protection capability) to eliminate redundancies and inefficiencies in the traditional layer-independent service provisioning. The integration of information is facilitated by GMPLS signaling. The proposed scheme also uses GMPLS capabilities to provide end-to-end survivability against network failures. The ability to provision across all network layers ensures efficient bandwidth usage. We propose two integrated routing algorithms: availability-based integrated routing algorithm and joint availability-based integrated routing algorithm. The simulation is made to evaluate the performance of our proposed integrated provisioning mechanism. As a result, network performance can be optimized over all layers. This could lead to significant cost savings for service providers.
