A Routing and Network Dimensioning Strategy to reduce Wavelength Continuity Conflicts in All-Optical Networks

Due to the high computational complexity of exact methods (e.g., integer programming) for routing and wavelength assigment in optical networks, it is beneficial to decompose the problem into a routing task and a wavelength allocation task. However, by this decomposition it is not necessarily possible to obtain a valid wavelength assignment for a given routing … Read more
