Extension of segment protection for bandwidth efficiency and differentiated quality of protection in optical/MPLS networks

Abstract

This paper investigates the problem of dynamic survivable lightpath provisioning against single node/link failures in optical mesh networks employing wavelength-division multiplexing (WDM). We unify various forms of segment protection into generalized segment protection (GSP). In GSP, the working path of a lightpath is divided into multiple overlapping… (More)
