Paper Abstract

All-optical networks can be dynamically reconfigured to adapt to changing traffic patterns. Many researchers, however, concentrate on reconfiguration of opto-electrical networks, as it is more practical at the present level of technology. This work presents an ad hoc algorithm that calculates transition from an existing configuration of an all-optical network to another, with minimal disturbance of the established connections. It analyzes the algorithms' wavelength usage efficiency and long-term stability, showing that such or similar algorithms can be used for practical purposes until some strict theoretical approaches can be found.
