Shared-Path Protection for Resource Efficiency -- Sub-Path Protection for Scalability and Fast Recovery -- Segment Protection for Bandwidth Efficiency and Differentiated Quality of Protection -- Survivable Traffic Grooming-Dedicated Protection -- Survivable Traffic Grooming-Shared Protection -- Survivable Virtual Concatenation for Data Over Sonet/Sdh.
Survivable Optical WDM Networks investigates different approaches for designing and operating an optical network with the objectives that (1) more connections can be carried by a given network, leading to more revenue, and (2) connections can recover faster in case of failures, leading to better services. Different networks -- wavelength-routed WDM networks, wavelength-routed WDM networks with sub-wavelength granularity grooming, and data over next-generation SONET/SDH over WDM networks -- are covered. Different approaches are proposed to explore every aspect of a protection scheme such as: (1) Protection granularity a. At wavelength granularity b. At sub-wavelength granularity (2) Protection entity a. Path protection b. Sub-path protection c. Segment protection (3) Routing a. Single-path routing b. Multi-path routing Tradeoffs between different objectives, e.g., resource efficiency vs. recovery time, are explored and practical approaches are proposed and analyzed. ---------------------------------------------------------- Canhui (Sam) Ou received a Ph.D. degree from the University of California, Davis, in 2004.
