Abstract

This paper proposes a novel recovery mechanism from large-scale network failures caused by earthquakes, terrorist attacks, large-scale power outages and software bugs. Our method, which takes advantage of overlay networking technologies, pre-calculates multiple routing configurations to prevent possible simultaneous network failures and selects one configuration immediately after detecting the failures. Through numerical calculation results using actual AS-level topology, we show that our proactive method improves network reachability from 89% to 99%, while keeping the path length sufficiently short, when up to 8% of the nodes in a network are down simultaneously.
