We propose a novel large-scale OXC architecture that utilizes WSSs for dynamic wavelength grouping and 1xn switches for fiber selection. We also develop a network design algorithm that can make the best use of the routing capability of the proposed nodes. Numerical experiments on several topologies show that the architecture attains substantial hardware(More)
In bandwidth abundant optical networks it is important to develop design strategies that are not only cost effective but also able to account for the inherent characteristics of the optical transmission medium responsible for the signal quality degradation. With this objective in mind, the paper proposes a design algorithm able to determine an appropriate(More)
