Protection performance components in MPLS networks
In this paper, we present a new methodology for evaluating fault recovery performance of some existing mechanisms, which considers the establishment of quality of service network paths with protection. In order to evaluate the level of protection of a network, different components, such as protection parameters (packet loss and restoration time), or network parameters and constraints (link failure probability and network load), are analyzed. A formulation to calculate the influence of each component in the establishment of protected paths is discussed in multiprotocol label switching (MPLS) networks. Several experiments are presented to support this formulation. Moreover, an analysis of the relationship between these protection components and different traffic classes is also introduced and justified. q 2004 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
