Abstract

Optical fiber network happens to be dominant transport medium because of its high data-carrying capacity. A single fiber failure in such networks can disrupt the information disseminated to several destination nodes, resulting in huge loss of data. Thus, it is imperative that multicast sessions in WDM networks should be protected from fiber failures. In this paper, we propose three novel protection schemes to protect multicast sessions against single fiber cut. The proposed schemes reduce the amount of network resource used by a session by reducing the number of branching in the multicast tree. As it is observed that more the number of leaf nodes in the multicast tree, more is the amount of network resource required to protect it. The performance of the proposed schemes is evaluated and compared with the reported state-of-the-art algorithm in the presence of dynamic traffic. An improvement of 7–15% is achieved using blocking probability as a performance metric.
