In this paper, we discuss for the first time the issue of supporting manycasting service over optical burstswitched (OBS) networks. One of the primary challenges in providing manycasting service over OBS networks is to reduce data loss due to burst contentions. We propose two new schemes, static over-provisioning (SOP) and dynamic membership (DM), to(More)
We define and investigate the problem of multi-resource manycast over optical burst switched (OBS) networks for supporting distributed computing applications. In multi-resource manycast, each destination has multiple computing resources, and each source generates requests that require multiple resources. For a given request, the problem is to select a set(More)
This paper investigates the subject of reliability via two link-disjoint paths in mesh networks. We address the issues of how reliable two-path protection can be and how to achieve the maximum reliability. This work differs from traditional studies, such as MIN-SUM, MIN-MAX, and MIN-MIN, in that the objective in this paper is to maximize the reliability of(More)
In this paper, we study the problem of survivable impairment-aware virtual optical network mapping in flexible-grid optical networks (SIA-VONM). The objective is to minimize the total cost of transponders, regenerators, and shared infrastructure for a given set of virtual optical networks, which can survive single link failures. We first provide the problem(More)
In this paper, we focus on the problem of effectively supporting a large number of small group multicasts in optical burst switched (OBS) networks. We first propose a multicast scheme for small group multicast in OBS networks. To reduce burst loss due to potential burst contentions, a deflection routing scheme for multicast is proposed. We then develop an(More)
We consider virtual optical network (VON) provisioning over a flexible-grid multi-domain optical network with the objective of minimizing total network cost, including the cost of transponders, regenerators, and spectrum. We propose a three-step heuristic algorithm that addresses the issues of domain selection, topology aggregation, and routing, modulation(More)
In this paper, we study the problem of survivable impairment-constrained virtual optical network mapping in flexible-grid optical networks (SIC-VONM). The objective is to minimize the total cost of working and backup resources, including transponders, regenerators, and shared infrastructure, for a given set of virtual optical networks, which can survive(More)
