Paper Abstract

We propose a hierarchical optical path network design algorithm that considers wavelength conversion. Numerical experiments prove that, by employing wavelength conversion, hierarchical optical path networks will be more cost effective than single-layer optical path networks over a wide range of traffic demand, which is not possible without using wavelength conversion.
