Abstract: Optical burst switching (OBS) is a promising technique for wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) networks. In practice, wavelength converters (WCs) are either absent or only sparsely deployed in WDM networks due to economic and technical limitations. Thus, wavelength assignment is expected to be an important component of OBS networks. In this paper, an offline wavelength assignment scheme in OBS networks without wavelength conversion capability is proposed. The key idea of the scheme is to decide the wavelength searching order of each traffic connection at edge nodes according to the wavelength priorities determined by the calculated burst loss probabilities on different wavelengths. Simulation results indicate that the proposed scheme can reduce the network-wide burst loss probability significantly compared with other schemes. It is also illustrated that the performance of the proposed scheme can be further enhanced by a larger number of wavelengths per link and a reasonable delay bound at edge nodes. © 2008 IEEE.
