|Title:||Design and analysis of P-cycle-based survivable optical networks||Authors:||Zhang, Zhen Rong||Keywords:||DRNTU::Engineering::Electrical and electronic engineering::Optics, optoelectronics, photonics||Issue Date:||2006||Source:||Zhang, Z. R. (2006). Design and analysis of P-cycle-based survivable optical networks. Doctoral thesis, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore.||Abstract:||In future high-capacity wavelength division multiplexed (WDM) optical networks, the failure of a network component such as a fiber link can lead to the failure of all lightpaths that traverse the failed link. Since each lightpath is expected to operate at a rate of several Gbps, such a failure can lead to a severe disruption in the network's traffic. So it is critically important to design WDM optical networks that are inherently fault-tolerant against events such as fiber cable cuts, central office failures and hardware failures. A survivable WDM optical network can provide alternate routes between a pair of nodes in case of failures. The primary objective of network survivability is to maintain the end-to-end data service in the event of any network element failures such as link or node failures.||Description:||165 p.||URI:||https://hdl.handle.net/10356/46967||DOI:||10.32657/10356/46967||Rights:||Nanyang Technological University||Fulltext Permission:||open||Fulltext Availability:||With Fulltext|
