In this paper, we propose a distributed fault localization protocol, called Parallel Limited Perimeter Vector Matching (P-LVM) protocol, for localizing multi-link failures in all-optical networks. The P-LVM protocol is based on the Limited Perimeter Vector Matching (LVM) protocol for localizing single-link failures in all-optical networks. To handle multi-link failures, it tries to separate each failure in a small perimeter area after identifying each perimeter area with its corresponding… CONTINUE READING
