A FAULT-TOLERANT LAYERED APPROACH TO FIBEROPTIC NETWORKS
Additional Document Info
Self-stabilizing protocols for the distributed control of fiber-optic networks are presented. The protocols tolerate any number and kind of initial faults and handle ongoing changes in the status of links. The new protocols improve upon previous protocols by their stabilization time, by their utilization of limited switch bandwidth and by their avoiding the use of (unbounded) sequence numbers.
