Paper Abstract

A translucent multicasting scheme based on sparsely placed signal re-generable translucent multicasting capable optical cross connect (tMC-OXC) nodes is proposed to provide signal-quality guaranteed multicasting services. We propose a tMC-OXC architecture capable of transparent unicasting and electronic multicasting. The electronic multicasting devices are also used to regenerate the impaired signals. A regeneration weight based MC-OXC nodes placement strategy is designed to construct the translucent network. We propose two multicasting tree construction algorithms to evaluate the performance of the proposed translucent network, where the selected MC-OXC nodes serve as core nodes (we call them hub nodes). Our study shows that no more than 30% nodes need to be equipped with electronic multicasting and electronic 3R regeneration capability, having more than 30% nodes with regeneration capability only slightly enhances the network performance.
