Title : Carrier Needs Regarding Survivability and Maintenance
for Switched Optical Networks
Author(s) : H. Ishimatsu et al.
Filename : draft-hayata-ipo-carrier-needs-00.txt
Date : 17-Nov-00
As discussed in , the need for survivable optical networks is
critical, and introducing capabilities that further enhance network
survivability continues to be an essential objective. This is
particularly important for operators with stringent requirements for
network resilience and service survivability. However, disruption of
service can result not only from faults, but also from scheduled
maintenance procedures. This draft introduces some additional
considerations and carrier needs related to failure recovery and
scheduled maintenance work in switched optical networks. These are of
critical importance for serving -business customers who require super
high quality service assurance and pay correspondingly high tariffs in
order to guarantee this level of QoS.

how to manipulate these messages.
