Multicasting and group casting with physical layer constraints in metropolitan optical networks with mesh topologies

(MULTIOPTI)

 
Project Overview
 
MULTIOPTI project investigated the problems of routing, grooming, and survivability for transparent optical networks that support unicast, multicast, as well as groupcast applications. In these transparent networks, where the signal stays in the optical domain for the entire path, efficient routing and wavelength assignment of multicast and groupcast connections becomes extremely important especially in light of the multiple splits that the signal undergoes and the physical layer impairments (crosstalk, dispersion, etc) that the optical signal encounters.
