Label switched networks have become increasingly attractive to both network providers and customers. By creating aggregate, bandwidth-reserved flows, these networks offer routing flexibility, predictable bandwidth usage, and quality-of-service (QoS) provisioning. This flexibility in routing enables fault-persistent QoS reservations, where connectivity, and allotted bandwidth remains available, even if some links or network nodes fail. The automatic switch-over from a now-defunct path to a new, working path is known as restoration. Restoring bandwidth-guaranteed paths requires allocation of resources on backup paths that will be used in the event of faults. In this paper, we investigate distributed algorithms for routing with backup restoration. Specifically, we propose a new concept of backup load distribution matrix that captures partial network state, greatly reducing the amount of routing information maintained and transmitted while achieving efficient bandwidth usage. We present and simulate two new distributed routing algorithms, which provide significant improvements in rejection rates and provide substantial savings in bandwidth used and call setup time compared to existing algorithms.
