Efficient routing and wavelength assignment for multicast in WDM networks

  title={Efficient routing and wavelength assignment for multicast in WDM networks},
  author={Biao Chen and Jianping Wang},
  journal={IEEE Journal on Selected Areas in Communications},
The next generation multimedia applications such as video conferencing and HDTV have raised tremendous challenges on the network design, both in bandwidth and service. As wavelength-division-multiplexing (WDM) networks have emerged as a promising candidate for future networks with large bandwidth, supporting efficient multicast in WDM networks becomes eminent. Different from IP layer, the cost of multicast at WDM layer involves not only bandwidth (wavelength) cost, but also wavelength… CONTINUE READING
