Dynamic multicasting in wavelength-division multiplexing ring employing multicast-capable optical add/drop multiplexers

Paper Abstract

We analyze the multicast capability of a multicast-capable optical add/drop multiplexer (MC-OADM) and investigate the dynamic network performance of the MC-OADM ring in comparison with that of the normal OADM ring without multicast capability. The simulation results show that the multicast scheme using MC-OADMs provides more multicast services and occupies fewer resources.
