Title

Redundancy, Diversity, and Connectivity to Achieve Multilevel Network Resilience, Survivability, and Disruption Tolerance (Invited Paper)

Abstract

Communication networks are constructed as a multilevel stack of infrastructure, protocols, and mechanisms: links and nodes, topology, routing paths, interconnected realms (ASs), end-to-end transport, and application interaction. The resilience of each one of these levels provides a foundation for the next level to achieve an overall goal of a resilient, survivable, disruption-tolerant, and dependable Future Internet. This paper concentrates on three critical resilience disciplines and the corresponding mechanisms to achieve multilevel resilience: redundancy for fault tolerance, diversity for survivability, and connectivity for disruption tolerance. Cross-layering and the mechanisms at each level are described, including richly connected topologies, multipath diverse routing, and disruption-tolerant end-to-end transport.
