Paper Abstract

Waveband switching (WBS) is proposed as a promising technique to reduce the number of switching ports, which could translate to the switching fabric size and cost of the nodes in the dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) network. We propose a routing and wavelength/waveband (RWA) heuristic algorithm, called Maximize the Number of Waveband Route (MNWR) for the dynamic arriving traffic demands in the multi-granularity WBS optical network. We study the performance of various MG-OXC architectures including the serial three-stage MG-OXC and the interconnecting three-stage MG-OXC proposed by our group employing the on-line MNWR algorithm. Simulation results indicate that the interconnecting three-stage MG-OXC outperforms the serial three-stage architecture in terms of blocking performance for dynamic requests.
