The present disclosure relates to improved resource utilization for networks with Permanent Sub-Network Connections (P-SNCs). A P-SNC is a stitched service which does not react to faults. The P-SNC service is only controlled by user actions/commands. All resources remain occupied on endpoints and along the path. The present disclosure provides an approach to free up P-SNC resources in a network dynamically across a faulted path when required such as when the P-SNC is Out-of-Service (OOS), or the bandwidth is needed by other services including higher priority services. The present disclosure leads to better bandwidth utilization in a network.
