Comparative Analysis of Routing and Wavelength Assignment Algorithms used in WDM Optical Networks

  title={Comparative Analysis of Routing and Wavelength Assignment Algorithms used in WDM Optical Networks},
  author={Seema Ansari and Adeel Ansari},
This study aims at highlighting the Routing and Wavelength Assignment (RWA) problems in WDM Optical networks and describes the Routing Algorithms and their performance comparison. Since routing decisions play an important role in evaluating the blocking performance of a network it is critical to choose a wavelength assignment scheme that should take into account its compatibility with the chosen routing protocol in addition to its blocking performance. This study presents problems in Wavelength… CONTINUE READING
