Current networks should provide disaster-resilience by coping with the possible failures and misbehaviours caused by massive natural or man-made disasters. This is necessary to keep a suitable level of Quality of Service after a disaster and to support the possible evacuation, rescue, assessment, and rescue operations within the affected area. Multiple possible methods and solutions can be put in place in a proactive and/or reactive manner to offer the required resilience degree. Among them, a proper routing algorithm can contribute to circumventing network elements damaged by the disaster or applying for spatial/temporal redundancy to guarantee effective communications. This chapter aims at presenting the main routing solutions to offer disaster-resilience communications, along with some related methods.
