Abstract

This paper investigates several problems associated with optical multicast routing and wavelength assignment in sparse-splitting optical networks for interactive real-time media distribution. Unfortunately, the constrained multicast routing with optimized wavelength assignment leads to NP-complete condition. Thus, in this paper, a virtual-node-based multicast routing algorithm is first proposed to satisfy the requirements of interactive real-time multicasting as well as the constraints from underlying optical networks. For the constructed multicast tree, we then associate an effective wavelength assignment algorithm. The experimental results show that the proposed algorithm combination performs well in terms of (1) the wavelength channel cost, (2) the maximum variation of inter-destination node delays, (3) the signal quality, and (4) the number of wavelength conversions.
