SONET ring applications for survivable fiber loop networks
TLDR
Synchronous optical network (SONET) self-healing rings (SHR) are studied in the loop environment. Expand
A study of the economics, operations and applications of SONET self-healing ring architectures
TLDR
The economics, operations, and applications of synchronous optical network (SONET) unidirectional and bidirectional self-healing ring architectures are studied in order to ascertain whether the use of the two different types of ring architecture for SONET networks is advisable, both from economic and operations viewpoint.

A service restoration time study for distributed control SONET digital cross-connect system self-healing networks
TLDR
The viability of distributed control restoration using digital cross-connect systems (DCS) depends on its capability for restoring services within specified time requirements. Expand
