Paper Abstract

Ring networks are the architecture of choice for WDM (Wavelength Division Multiplexing) telecommunication networks because of their inherent survivability, scalability, and large capacity. We describe a novel and efficient algorithm that allows a substantial reduction of the number of wavelengths required for full interconnection of bidirectional WDM ring, yet has much simpler wavelength assignment than the precisely optimal algorithm.
