Paper Abstract

A fundamental task of the optical layer in modern telecommunication systems consists of providing a fast protection mechanism against possible faults in the network. A particularly attractive protection technique in the optical layer is the so called shared line protection, in which network lines are protected using shared resources. A previous work of the authors formally describes the problem of minimizing the total wavelength mileage, or (lambda) -mileage, necessary in a Wavelength Routing network with arbitrary topology to provide shared line protection. This paper presents an efficient approach to solving the above wavelength mileage problem.
