This paper deals with resilience in all-optical networks. The main disadvantage when designing all-optical label swapping networks is the enormous dimensions an all-optical node can have. The node's size relates directly to the number of Label Switched Paths passing through the node. In this paper, we discuss how the dimensions of the all-optical node alter when introducing resilience in label swapping and stripping networks. We compare the node dimensions for different recovery strategies and different all-optical networking approaches.
