Optical wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) rings are being deployed to support SONET/SDH self-healing rings. In such systems, multiple SONET/SDH self-healing rings are realized over a single physical optical ring through wavelength division multiplexing. The cost of such a system is dominated by the SONET add/drop multiplexers (ADMs). To minimize the system cost, algorithms must be developed to assign wavelengths to lightpaths in the system so that the number of ADMs required is minimized. This problem of optimal wavelength assignment to minimize the number of SONET ADMs is known to be NP-hard. Existing heuristic algorithms for this problem include the assign first heuristic, the iterative matching heuristic and the iterative merging heuristic. In this paper, we develop an integer linear programming (ILP) formulation for this problem, propose a new wavelength assignment heuristic, and evaluate the existing and the newly proposed heuristic using the ILP formulation. We conclude that the performance of the newly proposed heuristic is very close to optimal.
