Routing and admission control in the multihop wavelength-division optical network

Luigi Fratta, Flaminio Borgonovo, Joseph Bannister, Mario Gerla
1994 Computer networks and ISDN systems  
A wavelength-division optical vetwork (WON) is a multihop, multichannel lightwave network based on wavelength-division multiplexing.  ...  We study in this paper routing and admission control in the WON.  ...  The advantages of deflection routing include the reduced requirement for buffers, simple buffer management, and inherent congestion control [16] .  ...

An optical packet network based on Arrayed Waveguide Gratings [article]

Hagen Woesner, Technische Universität Berlin, Technische Universität Berlin, Adam Wolisz
This work presents PrimeNet, a novel architecture for optical multihop networks and investigates a Medium Access Control (MAC) protocol and a fairness algorithm for it.  ...  The capacity of this multihop network is compared to a single-hop network.  ...  Adaptive Routing based on global information Adaptive routing may be either centralized or distributed.  ...
