This paper concentrates on the resilience of the generalized multi-protocol label switching (GMPLS) enabled control plane. To this end, the problem of control plane resilience in GMPLS-controlled networks is firstly stated and previous work on the topic reviewed. Next, analytical formulae to quantify the resilience of generic meshed control plane topologies are derived. The resulting model is validated by simulation results on several reference network scenarios.
