New Trends in Optical Networks Survivability


In today’s optical networks, the scale of survivability problems is expanding including a growing variety of failure types. It is of the outmost importance to withstand and recover from
failures ranging from the single network equipment malfunctioning, to natural disasters causing large network segments disruptions, e.g., earthquakes, tsunamis, floods and power outages. Moreover, with the advances in optical transmission techniques and with emerging network services, the survivability problem in optical networks is gaining new dimensions, i.e., it is becoming a multi-scale and a multi-service problem.
The scope of this workshop includes, but it is not limited to, the following topics:
  • Survivability of optical multi-layer networks
  • Protection techniques in fiber access networks
  • Attack- aware optical network design and modeling
  • Resiliency in a converged wired-wireless access scenario
  • Survivability in grid and distributed computing
  • Network resiliency for cloud computing
  • Management of survivable networks
  • Survivable multicasting in optical networks
  • Fault management, monitoring and control
  • Planning and optimization of reliable networks, systems and services
  • Disaster recovery
  • Survivability in Data Center Networks
  • Energy efficiency in survivable networks
