Abstract: There are some common network control issues in IP over WDM(IP/ WDM) which includes network addressing, neighborhood discovery, routing behavior, connection setup and tear down, signaling mechanism, network access control and IP/ WDM protection and restoration. Among them network addressing and restoration are two major research area. In this paper these two issues have been discussed. This paper also contains two different case studies based on lightpath provisioning and segment restoration.
Keywords: Optical cross-connector, shared-risk link group, open shortest path first, link state advertisement, label switched path, resource reservation protocol.
