Abstract

In order to reduce the overall wavelength number required in a wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) network with static traffic loading, new heuristic algorithms for wavelength assignment are proposed in this paper. A new parameter called “one-wavelength-decrease cost” is defined and used to compare the efficiency of these algorithms. Comparative simulation studies have been carried out for various network topologies to investigate the effectiveness of the proposed algorithms.
