Abstract

Due to the flexibility and adaptivity of elastic optical networks (EONs), IP-over-EON would be a promising infrastructure for next-generation backbone networks. As a backbone network usually carries massive traffic, one always needs to properly address its network survivability issue. The network survivability of an IP-over-EON can be affected not only by the fiber cuts in the EON layer but also by the router outages in the IP layer. In this work, we study how to realize the cross-layer orchestration to address IP router outages with cost-efficient multilayer restoration (MLR) in IP-over-EONs. Specifically, we consider the situation in which a single router outage happens in an IP-over-EON and propose MLR algorithms to minimize the additional operational expense (OPEX) due to MLR. We first design three MLR strategies to fully explore the flexibility and adaptivity of IP-over-EONs. Then, with the strategies, we formulate an integer linear programming (ILP) model to find the MLR scheme in which the additional OPEX due to incremental usages of sliceable bandwidth-variable transponders (SBV-Ts) and frequency slots (FSs) and lightpath reconfigurations is minimized. We also propose an auxiliary graph (AG) based heuristic algorithm to reduce the time complexity. The proposed algorithms are evaluated with extensive simulations, and the results indicate that, compared with an existing benchmark, they can effectively reduce the additional OPEX of MLR.
