We propose a high-speed protection scheme for multiple-priority-class traffic transmission in WDM ring networks. This scheme achieves high-speed protection by quickly suspending transmission of low-priority traffic when a failure is detected. Each node suspends transmission of the low-priority traffic being sent over the backup path corresponding to the impaired primary path after receiving a failure notification and checking a table that includes the primary paths passing through the node, the backup paths corresponding to the primary paths, and low-priority traffic transmitted by the node. If a node detects a failure, it sends a single failure notification for each ring to the source node of the primary path, and the nodes on the route sequentially suspend low-priority traffic. Simulation shows that the proposed scheme reduces the failure-recovery time by up to 60% compared with the conventional scheme.
