As more and more traffic is transported over communication networks, network survivability becomes a key issue in network design and planning. In this paper first the need for deploying network recovery techniques at multiple layers is motivated. Then the efficient coordination of these network recovery techniques is studied. Not only static but also dynamic multi-layer survivability strategies are presented and studied in this paper: dynamic multi-layer survivability strategies benefit from the ability of the underlying transport network to provide switched connection services in order to allow reconfiguring the logical network at the time of a failure. As not only the traffic volume keeps growing, but also more and more services with distinct reliability requirements are deployed, the benefit of differentiating the multi-layer survivability strategy per traffic class is investigated in this paper. Whereas the case studies in this paper focus on the cost-efficiency of the presented strategies and techniques, also a broader theoretic discussion is given on these techniques.
