Lord of the Rings. MSSP, MSDP ring protection

I was system architect in the telecommunication company several years ago.
And I am the author of the Network Managament System (NMS) for SDH, PDH, Ethernet networks and equipment.
The most interesting things in the SDH/PDH - theirs protection schemes:

  • MSDP Ring (Dedicated ring). One unidirectional ring for main traffic and one for protection.

  • MSSP Ring 2-Fiber (Shared ring). 1/2 of bidirectional ring for main traffic and 1/2 for protection.

  • MSSP Ring 4-Fiber (Shared ring). One bidirectional ring for main traffic and one for protection.


It is possible to use protecting channels for not protected (NOP) traffic while ring works without breaks.

Hi!
How does 2f-MSSP supports multiple fiber cuts. Please explain the Exact mechanism of this implimentation. Please do describe in the case of Node isolation ( both fibers break) too.

Thanks in advance.
