This paper addresses various implementation issues in an all-photonic overlaid-star network, where there can be multiple fibers between an edge and a core node and multiple wavelength channels in each fiber. By revisiting the fundamental star topology, an asymmetric multiconnection network is developed to model the node connections. A network flow model and a parallel time- wavelength assignment algorithm are then presented to solve the routing, wavelength assignment and time slot assignment… CONTINUE READING
