This paper presents a new source routing technique for ring and multi-ring networks, which uses short address labels. The main objectives for having this new method are that in case of one or more failures a frame will be guaranteed: (1) to be removed from the ring-termination property, and (2) to be copied at most once and only by its destinations-safety property. The scheme is based on dividing the label address space of each ring into subspaces, such that the address subspaces are physically disjoint. More specifically, each ring, in a multi-ring network, is divided into two or more parts such that adjacent address subspaces are disjoint. The route of each frame is described by a sequence of short address labels in the frame's header. The current route of a frame is determined by the first address label in its header, and it can be used for routing over at most one subspace of the ring
