Survivable WDM mesh networks
In a wavelength-division-multiplexing (WDM) optical network, the failure of network elements (e.g., fiber links and cross connects) may cause the failure of several optical channels, thereby leadingExpand

Traffic grooming in an optical WDM mesh network
In wavelength-division multiplexing (WDM) optical networks, the bandwidth request of a traffic stream can be much lower than the capacity of lightpath. Expand

A Practical Approach for Routing and Wavelength Assignment in Large Wavelength-Routed Optical Networks
We consider large optical networks in which nodes employ wavelength-routing switches which enable the establishment of wavelength-division-multiplexed channels, called lightpaths, between node pairs. Expand
