A scheme is proposed to provide multiple QoS guarantees for survivable generalised multiprotocol label switching (GMPLS) networks. The shared risk link group (SRLG) information is considered to provide failure-independent protection. Based on the problem formulation, the service level agreement (SLA) parameters, such as the expected recovery failure probability, the expected recovery time and the expected signal loss are analysed to reveal the bound of the backup path length. Under the constraint of such a backup path length limit, a heuristic algorithm is further proposed for online path configuration. The simulation results demonstrate that the heuristic algorithm provides recovery quality guaranteed backup paths with high bandwidth multiplexing gain.
