Local Fast Segment Rerouting on Hypercubes

LIPIcs-OPODIS-2018-13.pdf (1 MB)


Fast rerouting is an essential mechanism in any dependable communication network, allowing to quickly, i.e., locally, recover from network failures, without invoking the control plane. However, while locality ensures a fast reaction, the absence of global information also renders the design of highly resilient fast rerouting algorithms more challenging. In this paper, we study algorithms for fast rerouting in emerging Segment Routing (SR) networks, where intermediate destinations can be added to packets by nodes along the path. Our main contribution is a maximally resilient polynomial-time fast rerouting algorithm for SR networks based on a hypercube topology. Our algorithm is attractive as it preserves the original paths (and hence waypoints traversed along the way), and does not require packets to carry failure information. We complement our results with an integer linear program formulation for general graphs and exploratory simulation results.
