The multi-granular switching concept defined in Generalized Multiprotocol Label Switching (GMPLS) is expected to be a future-proof solution for mitigating the Optical Crossconnet scalability problems associated with the skyrocketing growth of traffic in optical transport networks. In this paper, we address the problem of planning the GMPLS-based (or multi-granular) transport network with color (or label) conversion and signal regeneration capabilities. The objective of the problem is to… CONTINUE READING
