Paper Abstract

Wavelength reservation protocols can be employed to dynamically set up and tear down lightpaths in WDM networks. The performance of these protocols in single-fiber WDM networks has been extensively studied. In this paper, the signaling protocols are extended for multi-fiber networks and novel wavelength selection policies are proposed. We compare the performance of different protocols in both single-fiber and multi-fiber WDM networks. The simulation results show our novel wavelength selection policies excel the other schemes. Related discussions on these results are included.
