Abstract
The blocking performance of wavelength routing WDM optical networks can be enhanced by applying routing and wavelength assignment. In this paper, we consider wavelength assignment problem in the optical network. Specifically, we propose a dynamic heuristic wavelength assignment algorithm, called Longest Segment (LS) algorithm, for WDM networks. In comparison to other proposed algorithms, the blocking performance of LS algorithm is better. In addition, the LS algorithm minimizes the usage of converters by chaining the minimum number of continuous segments which have at least one same available wavelength. Furthermore, the low algorithm’ complexity is an another advantage of the algorithm
