Routing and Topology Embedding in Lightwave Networks

  • Feng Cao


The need of high speed networks, for applications incorporating high performance distributed computing, multimedia communication and real time network services, has provided the impetus for the study of optical networks. Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) has been used widely for studying the throughput performance of optical networks. We studied WDM lightwave networks with tunable transceivers including designs for lightwave networks with limited tuning ranges for transceivers.
