Wavelength conversion has been shown as one of the key techniques to improve blocking performance in a wavelength-routed all-optical network. Given that wavelength converters nowadays remain very expensive, how to make effective use of a limited number of wavelength converters becomes an important issue. We propose sparse-partial wavelength conversion (SPWC) network architecture with the inherent flexibility that can facilitate network carriers to migrate the optical backbone to support… CONTINUE READING
