The authors consider optical networks using wavelength division multiplexing, where the path a signal takes is determined by the network switches, the wavelength of the signal, and the location the signal originated. Therefore, a signal is routed through a combination of circuit switching and wavelength routing (assigning it a wavelength). They present a bound on the minimum number of wavelengths needed based on the connectivity requirements of the users and the number of switching states. In… CONTINUE READING
