Abstract

Feature Issue on High Availability in Optical Networks

A resource provisioning method for optical backbone networks running IP or multiprotocol label switching (MPLS) is presented. Trunk and hose models are well-known bandwidth provisioning models, but both have significant disadvantages if applied to large-scale networks. The management complexity of the trunk model highly increases with the size of the network, and the bandwidth efficiency of the hose model is often excessively low. We propose an intermediate solution between the hose and trunk models. By dividing the network into clusters and using a cluster-based traffic description, an appropriate equilibrium can be found between management complexity and overprovisioning.
