Multicast capacity of packet-switched ring WDM networks
Packet-switched unidirectional and bidirectional ring wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) networks with destination stripping provide an increased capacity due to spatial wavelength reuse. Besides unicast traffic, future destination stripping ring WDM networks also need to support multicast traffic efficiently. In this paper, we examine the largest achievable transmitter throughput, receiver throughput, and multicast throughput of both unidirectional and bidirectional ring WDM networks with destination stripping. We provide a probabilistic analysis to evaluate both the nominal capacity, which is based on the mean hop distances travelled by the multicast packet copies, and the effective capacity, which is based on the ring segment with the highest utilization probability, for each of the three throughput metrics. The developed analytical methodology accommodates not only multicast traffic with arbitrary multicast fanout but also unicast and broadcast traffic. In our numerical i...
