Paper Abstract

Multi-granularity optical cross-connects (MG-OXC) is proposed as a promising technique to reduce the cost of the optical nodes in the wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) optical networks. In this paper, we use the on-line Maximize the Number of Waveband Route (MNWR) algorithm to evaluate the performance and optimize the design of multi-granularity optical WDM networks based on two different MG-OXCs: the serial MG-OXCs and the interconnecting MG-OXCs. The numerical results show that our optimal design can significantly reduce the network complexity and the blocking probability.
