CFP: Cooperative Fast Protection
—We introduce a novel protection scheme, called Cooperative Fast Protection (CFP), to fight against a single link failure in survivable WDM (Wavelength Division Multiplexing) mesh networks. CFP achieves capacityefficient fast protection with features of node-autonomy and failure-independency. Though CFP organizes spare capacity into pre-cross-connected cycles, it differs from p-cycle by reusing the released working capacity of the disrupted lightpaths (i.e., stubs) in a cooperative manner, and utilizing both the released stubs and the spare capacity on the cycles to set up backup paths. This is achieved by allowing all failure-aware nodes to switch traffic upon a link failure, such that the disrupted lightpaths can be restored even if the end nodes of the failed link are not on the cycles. CFP also differs from FIPP (Failure Independent Path Protecting) p-cycle by reducing optical recovery time, and not requiring the cycles to pass through the source nodes of the protected lightpaths...
