Abstract: An important requirement in any high speed network is to ensure the network's survivability, i.e., the ability to provide reroutes of ongoing connections after the failure of network components. We consider the problem of embedding an IP layer topology in the WDM transport network layer with the objective of achieving the network's survivability in the IP layer. Specifically, we consider the problem of embedding an arbitrary IP layer topology in a WDM wavelength-routing ring network such that the IP topology remains connected under the presence of the failure of any link in the WDM layer.
