High-speed optical networks need efficient protectionhestoration schemes. A heuristic distributed MST algorithm, called the Pick-up-Parent (PUP) Algorithm, is proposed in this paper. A node would activate this algorithm after receiving a special message, called a pick-up-parent message, in order to form a logical spanning tree for network protection. The… CONTINUE READING
