  • Patent number: 10218568
    Abstract: A method of provisioning a control plane in a multi-technology network in response to a first connection request received from a client. The method comprises receiving the first connection request at a control plane dispatcher; analysing said first connection request and selecting a control plane based on results of the analysis and characteristics of control planes at the disposal of the dispatcher in the multi-technology network. The control plane dispatcher selects on a per connection request basis what is the best technology for that request and its requirements, taking also into account the status of the network resources.

  • Patent number: 9774387
    Abstract: For protecting traffic on paths extending from a source client entity (CE1) to a destination client entity (CE2) via an optical transport network and attachment circuits at ingress (A,B) and egress (C,D) nodes, there are multiple paths within the OTN network, and the attachment circuits are dual homed. By sending (120) an indication of operational status of the dual homed attachment circuits within overhead associated with the traffic and sent with the traffic through the network, a selection can be made (130) of which of the provided paths and attachment circuits to use for the traffic, based on the indicated operational status, and on OTN fault detection, to protect against a fault in the attachment circuit or in the OTN network. Thus protection can extend across the edge nodes without the complexity and delays involved in interworking of separate protection schemes and without a control plane.

  • Patent number: 9426062
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method of fault monitoring in a fault monitoring entity of a network node of a network having at least a first connection-oriented network layer, having first protection measures associated therewith, and a second connection-oriented network layer, having second protection measures associated therewith. In a first step the service condition status of the first network layer is monitored using the first protection measures. In a second step the second network layer protection measures are determined for onward transmission within the second network layer depending on the service condition status of the first network layer. Since the network node is aware of the monitored status condition of both the first and second layers the protection mechanisms for the first network layer and the second network layer can be co-ordinated and the second network layer protection measure for onward transmission may be determined for optimum network fault protection operation.

  • Patent number: 9391874
    Abstract: Method of re-routing traffic in a communications network (1) in the event of a fault (3) on a path across the network, the method comprising, determining whether a first node (4), located between the fault and a network ingress node (6), is capable of switching traffic to an alternative path which avoids the fault, and if the first node is determined to be not so capable, then determining whether a second node (8), located upstream of the first node, is capable of switching traffic to an alternative path which avoids the fault.

  • Patent number: 9203732
    Abstract: A connection-oriented network (5) has a plurality of connections terminated at a first node (N6). A recovery group (A) is configured at the first node (N6) comprising at least two of the plurality of connections (LSP1-6, LSP2-6, LSP3-6, LSP4-6). Fault detection is performed over each of the connections in the recovery group (A) and the node determines if at least one recovery group fault condition is met, based on the results of the fault detections performed over the connections in the recovery-group (A). When the at least one recovery group fault condition is met, the node causes traffic on the plurality of connections in the recovery group (A) to be transferred to backup paths. When the at least one recovery group fault condition is not met, and a fault has been detected on a connection in the recovery group (A), the node causes traffic to be transferred from that connection to a backup path.

  • Patent number: 9112791
    Abstract: The invention relates in general to a communications network, and more particularly, to methods and apparatus for protecting such a network. The methods and apparatus disclose the providision path protection in a communications network (14) having a plurality of nodes including at least one access node (24, 26, 28, 30). A connection-oriented worker path (23) is set up between a first distribution node (22) and the at least one access node. A connection-oriented protection path (21) is also set up between a second distribution node and the at least one access node. A connection-oriented interface path (52) is also set up between the first and second distribution nodes. Traffic from an upstream node (16, 18) is switched to the interface path (52) at one of the distribution nodes (20, 22). Traffic may be switched to the protection path (21) in response to detecting a fault (54) in the worker path.

  • Patent number: 8750111
    Abstract: A method and a transport scheme for packets of traffic over a logical link made up of the aggregation of several physical links (16) connecting a transmitting side to a receiving side in which flows of incoming packets are sent to a scheduler/shaper (12) which selects therefrom packets for creating a global flow of packets falling within the bandwidth offered by the logical link on the basis of the bandwidth capability offered by the logical link. A distributor (13) distributes the global flow over the plurality of physical links (16) making up the logical link, oversees the physical links and sends to the scheduler/shaper signalling of a bandwidth decrease caused by failures of one or more physical links. The scheduler/shaper (12) is arranged to allow automatically for the logical link bandwidth variations while selecting the packets from the various incoming queues depending on the associated service class so as to cause the global flow to fall within the aggregated logical link bandwidth.
