Abstract

In All-Optical Transport Networks (AOTN), fault survivability issues are quite similar to those encountered in electro-optic networks that regenerate signals at the network node. On the other hand, attack survivability issues concerning physical fiber security in AOTNs require a new approach taking into consideration the AOTNs physical characteristics. Furthermore, attack detection and isolation schemes may no longer have access to the overhead bits that are otherwise used in legacy networks to transport supervisory information between repeaters or switching sites to perform their functions. This paper presents an analysis of attack and protection problems in AOTNs and proposes a conceptual framework for modeling attack problems and protection schemes for AOTNs.
