Analyzing Wavelength Conversion and Traffic Grooming in Optical WDM Networks
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
Wavelength conversion and traffic grooming have been among the most researched areas and technologies of importance in optical networking. Network performance improves significantly by relaxing the wavelength continuity constraint using wavelength converters and by improving the wavelength utilization using traffic grooming. We have done a literature review that compares the performance of wavelength conversion devices with different traffic grooming devices. This thesis work analyzes the impact of increasing the number of wavelength conversion devices and grooming capable devices using different placement schemes for our proposed network model, traffic loads and link capacities. Deciding the number and location of these devices to be used in a network is equally important. This work has been done through the simulation of different device placement scenarios and the results have been analyzed using connection blocking probability as the performance metric. Our reviews and work, correctly predict the behavior of results as demonstrated by the results of other referred literatures relating to wavelength conversion and traffic grooming.
