Crosslayer Survivability in Overlay-IP-WDM Networks
Pacharintanakul, Peera
ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, University of Pittsburgh
As the Internet moves towards a three-layer architecture consisting of overlay networks on top of the IP network layer on top of WDM-based physical networks, incorporating the interaction between and among network layers is crucial for efficient and effective implementation of survivability. This dissertation has four major foci as follows: First, a first-of-its-kind analysis of the impact of overlay network dependency on the lower layer network unveils that backhaul, a link loop that occurs at any two or more lower layers below the layer where traffic is present, could happen. This prompts our proposal of a "crosslayer survivable mapping" to highlight such challenges and to offer survivability in an efficient backhaul-free way. The results demonstrate that the impact of layer dependency is more severe than initially anticipated making it clear that independent single layer network design is inadequate to assure service guarantees and efficient capacity allocation. Second, a "forbidden link matrix" is proposed masking part of the network for use in situations where some physical links are reserved exclusively for a designated service, mainly for the context of providing multiple levels of differentiation on the network use and service guarantee. The masking effect is evaluated on metrics using practical approaches in a sample real-world network, showing that both efficiency and practicality can be achieved. Third, matrix-based optimization problem formulations of several crosslayer survivable mappings are presented; examples on the link availability mapping are particularly illustrated. Fourth, survivability strategies for two-layer backbone networks where traffic originates at each layer are investigated. Optimization-based formulations of performing recovery mechanisms at each layer for both layers of traffic are also presented. Numerical results indicate that, in such a wavelength-based optical network, implementing survivability of all traffic at the bottom layer can be a viable solution with significant advantages. This dissertation concludes by identifying a roadmap of potential future work for crosslayer survivability in layered network settings.
