Paper Abstract

In this work we examine various survivability schemes for an agile all-photonic backbone network (AAPN). The AAPN architecture has been proposed by the telecommunication industry as a possible candidate for the ultra high speed Next Generation Optical Network (NGON) architecture, and implements an adaptive optical core and edge routers or switches in a star formation. In this paper we study the issue of network survivability in AAPN architecture. We examine different choices for edge-switch traffic restoration, including 1+1 path protection, cycle-based approaches and protection trees, and their pros and cons. We have also analyzed and compared the performance of the proposed schemes.
