Keywords: Holding-time-aware (HTA) lightpaths Lightpath switching Anycast RWA WDM a b s t r a c t In this paper we investigate the problem of provisioning holding-time-aware (HTA) dynamic circuits in all-optical wavelength division multiplexed (WDM) networks. We employ a technique called lightpath switching (LPS) wherein the data transmission may begin on(More)
—Multicast communication in wavelength division multiplexed (WDM) networks is traditionally supported by the assumption that the optical crossconnects are multicast capable , i.e., they are capable of switching an incoming signal to more than one output interface. A naïve method of supporting this functionality in a multicast-incapable (MI) environment is(More)
