Abstract
In wavelength-division-multiplexing optical networks, the fiber links may share some common physical resources (e.g., cables, conduits), and the consequence is that they have a correlated link failure probability (CLFP), which means that the probability that link l will fail depends on whether link f has failed. Based on CLFP, we propose a new heuristic survivable algorithm, called differentiated path-shared protection (DPSP), to protect against double-link failures in WDM optical networks. In DPSP, each connection request can be assigned one working path and additional backup paths according to the differentiated reliability requirements of users. Compared to previous work, DPSP can obtain better performances in resource utilization ratio and blocking probability.
