  • Patent number: 9204209
    Abstract: In an optical transmission apparatus, a path information table stores paths set in a network and wavelength channel information on the paths. A controller searches for an apparatus which performs route switching of paths using a plurality of grouped wavelength channels, based on fault information on the network detected by the optical transmission apparatus, fault information on the network detected by other optical transmission apparatus, and the paths and wavelength channel information on the paths stored in the path information table.

  • Patent number: 8520690
    Abstract: A communication apparatus stores therein link information indicating a network connection status of an entire hierarchical network, collects link information indicating a network connection status in its own area in predetermined cycles, and transmits the collected link information to another area assigned a level different from a level assigned to its own area. When receiving link information from another area assigned a different level, the communication apparatus determines whether the received link information is new link information newer than link information stored in a predetermined storage unit; when it is determined that the received link information is new link-information, the communication apparatus stores the new link information into the predetermined storage unit and advertises it in its own area; by contrast, when it is determined that the received link information is not new link-information, the communication apparatus discards the received link information without storing and advertising.

  • Patent number: 8291113
    Abstract: When opposed communication transmitting apparatuses A and C are connected in a physical configuration thorough a communication transmitting apparatus B, if an interface configuration changing command is input to the communication transmitting apparatus B, the interface configuration is changed in the communication transmitting apparatus B and virtual connection is achieved such that the opposed communication transmitting apparatuses A and C pass through the communication transmitting apparatus B to directly connect an interface A1 and an interface C1. In this situation, since the GMPLS operation target apparatuses are only the communication transmitting apparatus A and the communication transmitting apparatus C and the communication transmitting apparatus B is a non-target apparatus of the GMPLS operation, the GMPLS scalability problem is solved and optical signals may be transferred at higher speed.
