Dual-failures are considered as the main contributors to service unavailability in p-cycle based mesh networks that are designed to withstand single failures. Methods such as post-failure reconfiguration and pre-failure provisioning of additional protection capacity have been considered to add another level of protection against dual-failures. In this paper, we present availability-aware service provisioning method in networks designed to only withstand single failures. The approach we discuss… CONTINUE READING
