— Constructing wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) switches with cheap components and low complexity is an important problem in optical networking. Typically, there are two request models widely considered. In one model, a connection request asks to go from a wavelength on an input fiber of the WDM switch to a particular wavelength on an output fiber. In(More)
Constructing fast wavelength division multiplexing switches with cheap, integratable components, less power consumption and noise accumulation, and low complexity is an important problem in optical networking. Typically, there are two request models widely considered. In one model, a connection request asks to go from a wavelength on an input fiber of the(More)
We study the problem of determining the minimum number of limited-range wavelength converters needed to construct strictly, wide-sense, and rearrangeably nonblocking optical cross-connects for both unicast and multicast traffic patterns. We give the exact formula to compute this number for rearrangeably and wide-sense nonblocking cross-connects under both(More)
— Constructing wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) multicast switches with cheap components and low complexity is an important problem in optical networking, since multicasting is one of the key requirements of emerging bandwidth-intensive applications such as video conferencing, video on demand and online gaming. In this paper we present several new(More)
We formulate a graph model called [<i>w, f</i>]-distributors which is useful in analyzing the structures and comparing the quantitative complexities and qualitative features of optical multicast cross-connects. Using the formulation we show that two strictly nonblocking multicast optical cross-connects under two different request models are equivalent(More)
