Abstract

Dynamic provisioning of restorable bandwidth guaranteed paths is a challenge in the design of broad-band transport networks, especially the next-generation optical networks. A common approach is called (failure-independent) path protection, whereby for every mission-critical active path to be established,a link (or node) disjoint backup path (BP) is also to be established. To optimize network resource utilization, shared path protection should be adopted, which often allows a new BP to share the bandwidth allocated to some existing BPs. However, it usually leads the backup paths to use too many links, with zero cost in term of additional backup bandwidth, along its route. It will violate the restoration time guarantee. In this paper, we proposed novel integer linear programming (ILP) formulations by introducing two parameters (ε and µ ) in both the sharing with complete information (SCI) scheme and the distributed partial information management (DPIM) scheme. Our results show that the proposed ILP formulations can not only improve the network resource utilization effectively,but also keep the BPs as short as possible.
