An Octagon-Cell Interconnected Network (OCN) has many attractive features. To represent OCN an undirected graph G = (V, E) is used, in which V is the set of nodes in the graph and E is the set of edges in the graph. Already the optimal routing algorithm had been presented with its features in our past research work. This research paper presents the optimal routing algorithm for horizontal moving signals in OCN with a faulty node/link along the optimal path. OCN is expandable. Also the algorithm tells that, even the OCN is expanded; there is no effect to find the optimal path in presence of faulty nodes. OCN can be utilized in massively parallel computing. In a massively parallel system a large number of processors are used to perform a set of coordinated computation simultaneously. So OCN is assumed a type of integrated circuit with an array of hundreds or thousands of central processing units (CPUs) and random-access memory banks.
