Design of Light-Tree Based Logical Topologies for Multicast Streams in Wavelength Routed Optical Networks
—In this paper, we formulate an optimization problem for the design of light-tree based logical topology in Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) networks. The problem is comprised of two parts: (1) multicast routing and wavelength assignment of light-trees, and (2) the design of light-tree based logical topology for multicast streams. In the first part, we use Mixed Integer Linear Programming (MILP) to solve the optimal routing and wavelength assignment problem of light-trees with an end-to-end delay bound, and obtain the optimal placement of power splitters and wavelength converters. The numerical results show that networks with just a few power splitters and wavelength converters can efficiently carry multicast data. In the second part, we extend the above formulation to design the logical topology based on light-trees for multicast streams. In our approach, a light-tree can carry data of multiple multicast streams, and data of a multicast stream may traverse multiple light-trees...
