With the recent explosive growth of Internet traffic, optical networks with high connectivity and large capacity are indispensable. This can be achieved by multi-dimensional optical routing networks, which can offer fine bandwidth granularity and a large number of channels. In this paper, a trunk switched model is used to study the performance of multi-dimensional optical routing networks. The closed-form network utilization is derived and compared to that of one-dimensional optical routing networks. The network utilization gain is found to be closely related to the link correlation and be insensitive to the network size. Besides, based on this analytical model, the closed-form conversion gains are derived for both partially and fully convertible cases. These results provide crucial information in performance optimization of multi-dimensional optical routing networks.
