Given the abundance and strategic importance of ring fiber plants in metropolitan area networks (MANs), and the accelerating growth of Internet traffic, it is crucial to extend the existing Internet protocol (IP)-based generalized multiprotocol label switching (GMPLS) framework to provision dynamic wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) optical rings. Nevertheless, the emerging GMPLS-based lightpath provisioning does not cover the intricacies of optical rings. No GMPLS standard exists for optical add-drop multiplexer (OADM) rings, relying instead upon proprietary static solution. The objective of this paper is to propose and evaluate novel GMPLS-based lightpath signaling and wavelength reservation schemes specifically designed for dedicated protection ring (DPRing)-based MANs. Performance evaluation has been carried out in a GMPLS-based testbed named ADRENALINE.
