Clustering techniques for traffic grooming in optical WDM mesh networks

  title={Clustering techniques for traffic grooming in optical WDM mesh networks},
  author={Zhemin Ding and Mounir Hamdi},
In WDM msmission, each data channel is carried on a unique wavelength (or optical fnquency) and a single optical fiber has many different wavelengths. A lightpath (wavelength continuous path without processing in intermediate nodes) is needed to set up for an end-bend transmission Because of the lightpath continuity constraint, we need to consider the routing as well as pick up appropriate wavelength when a traffic request arrives. This problem is called routing and wavel& assignment (RWA… CONTINUE READING
