Heuristic protection algorithm in multicast multi-domain optical networks


In this paper, we propose a new heuristic algorithm called Multicast Multi-domain Dedicated Protection (MMDP) to provide survivability in multicast multi-domain optical networks. In route computation, MMDP considers the load balancing. To provide the intra-domain protection, MMDP uses the modified Minimal-cost Path Heuristic (MPH) algorithm to compute the… (More)
