Paper Abstract

Considering the economic and technical aspects of wavelength converters, full wavelength conversion capability will not be available throughout optical networks in the foreseeable future. This letter investigates the wavelength assignment problem in wavelength-continuous optical burst switching (OBS) networks. First, we develop a novel static approach, termed balanced static wavelength assignment (BSWA), which outperforms all other static strategies, and achieves almost the same performance as dynamic strategies with the advantage that no extra dynamic information is needed. Then, we apply BSWA to a dynamic approach to accelerate network convergence and reduce the initial burst loss. Numerical results show that our approaches make significant improvements in the burst loss probability in OBS networks.
