|Title:||Distributed wavelength provisioning in WDM optical networks||Authors:||Liu, Jian.||Keywords:||DRNTU::Engineering::Electrical and electronic engineering::Optics, optoelectronics, photonics||Issue Date:||2009||Source:||Liu, J. (2009). Distributed wavelength provisioning in WDM optical networks. Doctoral thesis, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore.||Abstract:||In recent years, wavelength-division multiplexing (WDM) has been gaining acceptance as an effective solution for handling the tremendous bandwidth demands. Wavelength-routed networks promise to become the next-generation optical networks by providing end-to-end transparency. With the developments of wavelength-routed networks, distributed lightpath provisioning becomes an increasingly important research topic since it provides the flexibility and high bandwidth efficiency requested by the future data communications. A critical problem in distributed lightpath provisioning, however, is the unavoidable existence of outdated link-state information: invalid routing and wavelength assignment (RWA) decisions may be made based on the stale link-state information and consequently the lightpath establishment requests may have to be rejected.||Description:||143 p.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10356/47048||Rights:||Nanyang Technological University||Fulltext Permission:||open||Fulltext Availability:||With Fulltext|
