An Alarm Filtering Algorithm For Optical Communication Networks

A single failure in a communication network can trigger many alarms. We propose an alarm filtering algorithm for the management of an optical network using Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM). The algorithm supports: (i) multiple failures and (ii) passive network elements that do not generate alarms but may fail. This algorithm will be applied to the network of the ACTS COBNET project.
