Abstract : This disclosure concerns a communications network information system, and provides apparatus and a method for efficiently providing survivable communications capability to every surviving node in the communications network from every other surviving node. The types of information provided can include high priority message between users of the communications system, or perhaps of even greater importance, very frequently updated status information about the communications network nodes and their interconnecting links for use in optimally utilizing the surviving resources of a heavily damaged network. With this capability every surviving node in the network will be automatically and efficiently provided with the status of every node and interconnecting link. (Author)
