Abstract

In this paper, we study the problem of inter-domain routing with two additive QoS constraints in hierarchical optical networks. We develop an inter-domain routing protocol that (1) identifies the QoS supported by the paths, (2) selects an inter-domain path that satisfies the QoS requirement of a connection request, and (3) reserves the wavelength on each link along the path in such a way that the number of wavelength converters needed is minimized. Both formal analyses and extensive simulation experiments show that our inter-domain routing protocol outperforms the existing protocols.
