Disjoint Multi-Path Routing and Failure Recovery Conference Paper uri icon


  • Applications such as Voice over IP and video delivery require continuous network service, requiring fast failure recovery mechanisms. Proactive Fast failure recovery mechanisms have been recently proposed to improve network performance during the failure transients. The proposed mechanisms need extra infrastructural support in the form of routing table entries, extra addresses etc. In this paper, we study if the extra infrastructure support can be exploited to build disjoint paths in those frameworks, while keeping the recovery path lengths close to the primary paths. Our evaluations show that it is possible to extend the proactive recovery mechanisms to provide support for nearly-disjoint paths. 2010 IEEE.
