Abstract
We propose wavelength-division-multiplexing (WDM) networks with light splitting and wavelength conversion that can efficiently support multicast routing between nodes. Our iterative algorithm analyzes the original multicast routing network by decomposing it into multicast subgroups. These subgroups have the same wavelength, and the individual subgroup is combined to build a multicast tree. From the multicast tree, we can compute efficiently to multicast for short paths. Numerical results obtained for the ARPANET show that our algorithm can greatly reduce the optical blocking probability and the number of required wavelength conversions.
