Paper Abstract

Simple topologies are proposed for linear lightwave networks (LLN). Tree-based networks which preclude the possibility of certain violations are compared to networks that allow violations to occur but achieve better load distribution within the network. The performance of each topology, from the point of view of blocking probability, is compared by a simulator using a call routing algorithm based on the K-shortest path algorithm. It is found that general topologies that allow for better load distribution perform better than tree-based topologies.
