Abstract:


Background: This paper is a review of optical fiber communications and also presents the different types of disasters and different protection schemes to combat these disasters. In the optical communication network, the failure of a network caused by disasters (e.g. predictable disaster, unpredictable disaster, Intentional attacks) leads to the failure of several optical communication channels and huge data loss. Most of the previous works on optical network survivability assume that the failures are going to occur in future, and the network is made survivable to ensure connectivity in events of failures. With the advancements in technology, the predictions of tornados, cyclone and landslides are becoming more accurate by using some early warning systems.

Objective: Significant improvement in optical communication network survivability can be achieved using our proposed protection scheme in the event of a major earthquake, cloud burst and landslides.

Conclusion: The review concludes that a large amount of data could be lost even if there is a very short disruption in the optical backbone network.
