In this paper, we investigate the problem of Multicast Routing in Sparse Splitting Networks (MR-SSN). Given a network topology with the multicast capable nodes distributed uniformly throughout the network, and a multicast session, the MR-SSN problem is to find a route from the source node of the multicast session to all destinations of the multicast session such that the total number of fibers used in establishing the session is minimized. In this paper, we develop a rerouting algorithm for a… CONTINUE READING
