Abstract

This paper proposes a fast fault recovery method for the wide area Ethernet. To achieve fast recovery, a pre-established forwarding table is introduced. The pre-established table is looked up when a fault occurs, and frames are forwarded without frame loss. Ethernet lacks of fault recovery features required in Wide Area Network (WAN) since it is originated as Local Area Network (LAN) technology. Protection or restoration is a typical method for fault recovery, but a lot of frame losses are inevitable. Our proposal can decrease frame losses since frames are forwarded without waiting for path switching to be completed to use the pre-preparation table. In addition, the proposed method can be operated with the legacy forwarding method seamlessly. The simulation results show that frame loss decreases to 40 % or less with our proposed method.
