The average increment and the increasing variability of the traffic to be carried by ASON/GMPLS transport networks will require on-demand bandwidth provisioning in the near future. In this scenario dynamic routing based on traffic engineering techniques is a key issue. This paper deals with dynamic routing in ASON/GMPLS networks based on using network failures information. We define three routing strategies which differ in the use of failure information. Their performance is evaluated by simulation in terms of request blocking probability and availability

    ABSTRACT: In this paper, we present a new connection provisioning algorithm for availability-aware optical transport networks planning regarding shareability of backup channels. The proposed scheme is designed to work under shared backup path protection policy and attempts to minimize the conflict between unavailability per connection and resource overbuild. It is adapted into a conventional two-step availability-constrained connection provisioning scheme. We evaluate the performance of this dynamic shareability driven connection provisioning scheme in terms of unavailability per connection and resource consumption as applied to NSFNET and EON topologies. Simulation results show that dynamic shareability driven connection provisioning scheme reduces the unavailability per connection by not violating the resource consumption as much as the dedicated path protection.

    ABSTRACT: In this paper, we propose an availability analysis method for overlapping shared segment protection. We validate the proposed analysis method for different traffic demand matrices and different failure rate values. We show that the proposed analysis method achieves estimating the availability of a connection with a negligible error ratio. We then present two connection provisioning schemes, namely availability constrained generalized segment protection (AC-GSP), and share ability driven availability constrained generalized segment protection (SDAC-GSP) that are availability-aware adaptation of a conventional segment selection algorithm, namely the generalized segment protection (GSP). We evaluate the performance of these proposed schemes, and we show that as an enhancement to GSP, SDAC-GSP enhances the performance of AC-GSP in terms of the availability per connection, blocking probability and availability satisfaction ratio. However, it utilizes more wavelengths in comparison to AC-GSP since the more segments protects the links of the working path, the higher availability.

    ABSTRACT: In this paper, we present two adaptive schemes, namely, global differentiated availability-aware provisioning (G-DAP) and link-by-link differentiated availability-aware provisioning (LBL-DAP) for connection provisioning in optical transport networks under dual failure assumption. G-DAP attempts to determine a feasible sharing degree for each availability class for the links in the network globally. As an enhancement to G-DAP, LBL-DAP tries to determine a feasible sharing degree per availability class on each link. Connections belong to one of the five availability classes with the availability requirements of 0.98, 0.99, 0.999, 0.9999, and 0.99999, which are specified in their service level agreement (SLA). We compare the performance of the proposed schemes with a conventional service provisioning scheme, compute a feasible solution (CAFES) under the NSFNET and European optical network (EON) topologies. The simulation results show that the proposed schemes introduce better availability per connection and lower blocking probabilities. LBL-DAP performs the best by monitoring the shareability status of each link periodically with respect to the metrics studied, and decreases resource overbuild.
