Blackout Resilient Optical Core Network

by   Zaid H. Nasralla, et al.

A disaster may not necessarily demolish the telecommunications infrastructure, but instead it might affect the national grid and cause blackouts, consequently disrupting the network operation unless there is an alternative power source(s). In this paper, power outages are considered, and the telecommunication network performance is evaluated during a blackout. Two approaches are presented to minimize the impact of power outage and maximize the survival time of the blackout node. A mixed integer linear programming (MILP) model is developed to evaluate the network performance under a single node blackout scenario. The model is used to evaluate the network under the two proposed scenarios. The results show that the proposed approach succeeds in extending the network life time while minimizing the required amount of backup energy.
