Existing networks use WDM as a physical media layer for point-to-point transmission. A lightpath is an optical communication path between two nodes, . A viable solution to meet this challenge is to use optical networks based on wavelength-division multiplexing (WDM) technology. WDM divides the vast.

Restoration approach in WDM optical networks | Ajay K Sharma –

If both primary and backup lightpaths are available for a demand, the demand is accepted. The corresponding multiple backup paths are derived by erasing the links of the primary path from the network topology and then performing the Dijkstra algorithm on the reduced network topology again. In partic- ular, we propose a novel active restoration scheme in which a primary lightpath is guarded by multiple backup lightpaths that are predefined but not reserved along the primary path before failure occurs.

If we use E P to denote the set of edges a path P travels, then the length L P of the path P can be computed as follows: In the proactive scheme, what actually happens is that the generated fail- ure may not interrupt any connection as the connections that would go through this link were already blocked because of the high blocking probability of this scheme, especially under a heavy traffic load.


The approaches to ensuring survivability can be generally classified as proactive protection and reactive restoration.

Lightpath Restoration in WDM Optical Networks

If backup multiplexing is not Provisioning and restoration are very important issues employed, then the resources required are at least in WDM optical networks. Reactive techniques are those techniques in which backup light- In this approach, each connection request is taken one path is searched after the occurrence of failure.

Survivability is defined as the ability of the network to maintain service continuity to end users in the presence of network failures [2]. When the workload netwroks 4. Skip to main content. Citations Publications citing this paper. It establishes communica- the resources.

The results in Figs. Active Light-Path Restoration We consider the case in which traffic demands or requests arrive one by one without any prior knowledge of future arrival. If there are not enough resources along the backup path of the first supported node, the backup paths of the following supported nodes wsm be investigated [e. Please login to set citation alerts.

So approach and group connection approach, respectively. To compare the restoration time, we summarize in Table 2 the average restoration time, which is estimated by the average of the restoration time of all workloads, for both the proactive path-based method and our scheme. Section 2 introduces has been restored by the amount of the total traffic the restoration in WDM networks networks.

Todimala and Ramamurthy [1] pointed out that fiber cuts occur at the rate of 4. From Table 2 it is clear that the restoration time of the proposed algorithm is a little bit higher than that of the proactive path-based method.


To investigate the second factor further, consider the case of a failure generated randomly across a link and applied to both schemes simultaneously. The adjacency matrix A of G can be represented as follows: With the former, a backup lightpath is computed, and wavelength channels are reserved for it at the time the primary lightpath is established. For large networks, approach, there is only one backup lightpath. In this, single failure model has been assumed. The proposed approach backup lightpath, the restoration can be categorized as result in more connections as compared to existing proactive and reactive techniques.

Otherwise, the FNM may be forwarded to fol- lowing supported nodes up to the last node. It gives priority to primary lightpath as compared to backup lightpath because primary lightpath should not share resources with other lightpaths in critical applications but backup lightpaths can share the resources, i.

Depending on the location of the failure, one of the backup paths will be activated to restore the disrupted traffic. Restoration time is the time taken by the explains the existing and proposed restoration ap- system for restoration after failure.
