Regenerator allocation for scheduled lightpath demands in translucent optical networks

Abstract

Physical layer impairments limit the maximum distance a signal can travel in the optical domain in wavelength-routed optical networks. In translucent optical networks, regenerators are made available at certain nodes, so long-haul lightpaths can undergo signal regeneration, if needed. A number of different routing and wavelength assignment (RWA) techniques… (More)
