Extending the p-cycle concept to path-segment protection

  title={Extending the p-cycle concept to path-segment protection},
  author={Wayne D. Grover and Gangxiang Shen},
This work introduces a significant extension to the method of -cycles for network protection. The main advance is the generalization of the -cycle concept to protect path segments of contiguous working flow, not only spans that lie on the cycle or directly straddle the -cycle. This effectively extends the -cycle technique to include path protection or protection of any flow segment along a path, as well as the original span protecting use of -cycles. It also gives an inherent means of… CONTINUE READING
