In future GMPLS-based wavelength-routed networks (WRNs), lightpaths are set up or torn down dynamically. Blocking probabilities of on-demand requests are an important performance measure. However, the network average blocking probability only indicates the global performance of the network. Due to large resource requirements and wavelength continuity constraint, the blocking probabilities of longer-hop connections are usually much higher than those of shorter-hop connections. This problem is the so-called fairness problem. In this paper, a priority-based control is proposed to improve the fairness between different connections. Connections with high blocking probabilities are assigned high priorities and they are able to preempt low priority connections with a predetermined probability. Both theoretical analyses and simulations are given. It is shown that the proposed control not only improves the fairness, but also ensures that the average blocking probability is not degraded much. Hence, the performance of the GMPLS-based optical networks will be improved greatly.
