In an optical network, the fiber optic cable is used for communication between the nodes in a network by passing lights. The main problem in optical network is finding the link disjoints as well as optimal solution for the disjoints. To tolerate a single link failure in the network, the enhanced active path first algorithm is used which computes the re-routed back-up path. The multiple link failure in a network called fibre span disjoint path problem is solved using integer linear programming algorithm. The loop back recovery is used to provide pre-planned recovery of link or node failures in a network which allows dynamic choice of routes over pre-planned directions. Considering reliability in a mesh networks, the reliability algorithm helps to achieve the maximum reliability in two-path protection. It addresses the multiple disjoint failures that arise in a network and discusses the best solution between paths shared nodes or links. The unified algorithm is used to generate the optimal results with minimum cost for multiple link failures. The heuristic algorithm namely maximum arbitrary double-link protection algorithm helps to pre-compute the back-up path for double-link failures. In all the above approaches the shortest optimized path must be improved. To find the best shortest path, link-disjoint lightpath algorithm is designed to compute the disjoint occurred in a network and it also satisfies the wavelength continuity constraint in wavelength division multiplexing. A polynomial time algorithm Wavelength Division Multiplexing – Passive Optical Networking is used to compute the disjoint happen in the network. The overall time efficiency is analyzed and performance is evaluated through simulations.
