Paper Abstract

This paper considers multicast routing and wavelength assignment (MCRWA) in a wide area all-optical network. We present static and dynamic MCRWA algorithms, and evaluate their blocking performance under various fanout splitting policies. Through simulations and comparisons with a lower bound, we demonstrate that dynamic MCRWA can perform significantly better than its static counterparts. We then quantify the throughput gain due to link sharing in multicasting. We also present an analytical model for estimating the blocking performance of the static MCRWA algorithms. The performance improvement with multifiber networks and with wavelength conversion are also investigated.
