Abstract

This disclosure provides the means for self-provisioning of wavelength multiplexing equipment. This allows the multiplexing equipment to automatically determine whether multiple data paths to the same destination are being routed along a potential single point of failure, and to correct this condition by re-provisioning some of the affected data paths. This contributes to higher system availability for business continuity and disaster recovery solutions.
