Reducing the lightpath establishing time of FWM-aware dynamic RWA for wavelength-routed optical networks

Reducing the lightpath establishing time of FWM-aware dynamic RWA for wavelength-routed optical... A dynamic routing and wavelength allocation technique with an interplay between physical and network layer parameters encompassing Four-wave mixing (FWM) awareness and teletraffic performance of wavelength-routed optical networks has previously been proposed for a distributed approach. In this article, we present a fast computational algorithm for our routing and wavelength assignment (RWA) encompassing FWM-induced crosstalk. The objective is to minimize the time of establishing a dynamic lightpath. For this purpose, a precomputed matrix of FWM crosstalk products is used in an adapted version of the FWM-aware dynamic RWA algorithm. The approach is validated through simulations showing improvement up to 30–50% on the provisioning time of lightpaths for different network topologies compared to an online full computational scheme.
