22 September 2000 Performance of LPT with lookahead for the reconfiguration of WDM all-optical networks

We consider a class of WDM (Wavelength Division Multiplexing) all-optical networks, the well known broadcast-and-select networks, where each transmitter can broadcast its message on a different wavelength, and the receivers can be tuned to receive the desired message. We consider fast (resp. slow) tunability on the transmitters (resp. receivers). It has been shown in that in such a context whenever the traffic load is not well balanced among the different channels then the network performance is poor. Here, we study the performance of some variants of the well known LPT (Longest Processing Time) algorithm with lookahead for the reconfiguration of networks of this class in response to traffic changes.
