A multiple failure propagation model in GMPLS-based networks

In this article, a new model to simulate different failure propagation scenarios in GMPLS-based networks is proposed. Several types of failures and malfunctions may spread along the network following different patterns (hardware failures, natural disasters, accidents, configuration errors, viruses, software bugs, etc.). The current literature presents several models for the spreading of failures in general networks. In communication networks, a failure affects not only nodes but also the connections passing through those nodes. The model in this article takes into account GMPLS node failures, affecting both data and control planes. The model is tested by simulation using different types of network topologies. In addition, a new method for the classification of network robustness is also introduced

Abstract: In this article, a new model to simulate different failure propagation scenarios in GMPLS-based networks is proposed.

In communication networks, a failure affects not only nodes but also the connections passing through those nodes. The model in this article takes into account GMPLS node failures, affecting both data and control planes. The model is tested by simulation using different types of network topologies.
