An Inter-domain Routing and Signaling Scheme for Optical Mesh Networks

An Inter-domain Routing and Signaling Scheme for Optical Mesh Networks An inter-domain routing and signaling scheme based on the OBGP protocol for WDM networks with a mesh topology is proposed in the paper. For mesh networks with wavelength conversion, inter-domain routing and signaling are realized by introducing a new message based on an optimal path identifier (OPI) and by establishing the corresponding message-exchange procedures. Considering the wavelength continuity constraint, a strategy called improved destination wavelength assignment (IDWA) combined with the OPI-based message is presented to establish a lightpath dynamically. The scheme is verified on the NSFNET and the CERNET by simulation. Results show that the blocking performance of a non-wavelength-conversion network is even a little lower than that of a wavelength-conversion network.
