Priority-based M:N Protection in GMPLS Networks
Abstract:A strict priority queueing model for generalized label switched paths (G.LSPs) M:N protection is developed in this letter. The analytical results are validated by simulation. The analytical model is helpful to the selection of appropriate number of backup paths in a priority-based M:N protection design to satisfy certain reliability requirement and to avoid resource over-provisioning.
