Stochastic RWA and Lightpath Rerouting in WDM Networks

In a telecommunication network, Routing and Wavelength Assignment (RWA) is the problem of finding lightpaths for incoming connection requests. When facing a dynamic traffic, greedy assignment of lightpaths to incoming requests based on predefined deterministic policies leads to a fragmented network that cannot make use of its full capacity due to stranded bandwidth. At this … Read more
