This paper proposes a novel representation scheme for self-healing networks, and estimates the performance of restoration algorithms in terms of survivability. This representation is based on that of ring networks. For an arbitrary topology, the network is partitioned into ring sub-networks which are independent of each other, and we consider an extended network constructed by the concatenation of the ring sub-networks. After the statement of the general case, examples of a self-healing ring and a Digital Cross-connect System(DCS)based network are described.
