The integration of elastic optical network with the WiMAX network can provide scalable cost-efficient universal broadband connectivity to end users. Here, we have developed algorithms for traffic grooming in integrated (elastic optical and WiMAX) networks. The simulation is performed on different network topologies. Our algorithm shows better performance in terms of bandwidth blocking ratio and using minimum network resources.
