  • Routing and wavelength assignment (RWA) is an important pro blem that arises in wavelength division multiplexed (WDM) optical networks. Previ ous studies have solved many variations of this problem under the assumption of perfect c onditions regarding the power of a signal. In this paper, we investigate this problem while al owing for degradation of routed signals by components such as taps, multiplexers, switchin g elements, fiber links, etc. It is assumed that inline optical amplifiers are… CONTINUE READING
