4 Introduction DWDM technology brought about a tremendous increase in the size of OXCs. It incurred the cost and difficulty to control such large OXCs. One of the major factors contributing the cost and complexity of OXC is its port count. Waveband switching groups several wavelengths together as a band, and to switch the band using a single port.
5 Example Ten fibers, 100 wavelengths/fiber, and one wavelength needs to be dropped and one to be added at a node. Ordinary-OXC: 999 ports for bypass, 2 for drop and add. Total:1001 ports MG-OXC: Each fiber is grouped into 20 bands, each band has 5 wavelengths. 9 ports for bypass fiber, 2 ports for FTB, BTF, 19 ports for bypass waveband, 2 ports for BTW, WTB, 4 ports for bypass wavelength, 2 ports for add and drop. Total: 38 ports.
22 Balanced Path Routing with Heavy- traffic First Waveband Assignment Grouping the lightpaths with the same SD pair. Grouping the lightpaths from the same source. Grouping the lightpaths with same destination. Grouping the lightpaths with common intermediate links.
23 BPHT Stage 1: Balanced Path Routing Achieve load balanced routing Stage 2: Wavelength Assignment Assign the wavelengths to those bypass lightpaths first. Give preference to the lightpaths that overlap with many other shorter lightpaths to max the advantage of wavebanding. Stage 3: Waveband Switching Switch as many fibers using FXCs as possible Then as many wavebands using BXCs as possible.
29 Conclusions We have developed a corresponding ILP formulation, and an efficient near-optimal heuristic algorithm. With appropriate waveband granularity, using MG-OXCs can save up to 50% ports in single-fiber networks and up to 70% ports in multifiber networks, when compared with using ordinary-OXCs.
31 Objective Reduce the number of used ports Bypass traffic accounts for 60%~80% of the total traffic in the backbone. Reduce the cost of MG-OXC Reduce the blocking probability of dynamic connection request
33 Ports Count Number of Ports used: The port ratio of MG-OXC to ordinary-OXC
34 Single fiber system For single fiber systems, α must be 1 to allow any fiber to be demultiplexed to bands. We can limit the value of β to less than 1 by allowing only a limited number of bands to be demultiplexed to wavelengths. We study the effects of varying β. Assume no wavelength or waveband conversion
41 Numerical Result Random-Fit The RWA doesn’t consider how to group the lightpaths into bands appropriately. First-Fit Assign wavelengths to lightpaths sequentially which helps in wavebanding and thus reducing the number of used ports. When β<0.65, MILB is better than First-Fit, and much better than Random-Fit.
43 Conclusion We proposed an efficient heuristic algorithm, MILB to do RWA for WBS in conjunction with a reconfigurable MG-OXC architecture for dynamic traffic. Our heuristic is especially useful for reducing network operating costs by minimizing the number of used ports in a WDM network.
