Abstract

Research on LEO inter-satellite laser communication based on wavelength division multiplexing inter-satellite links and its routing and wavelength assignment (RWA) technology is an important way to solve the problem of low-latency, high-capacity, high-speed transmission, and low-cost on-orbit real-time routing of free-space optical communications. Since both the transmitting and receiving sides of the inter-satellite communication are high-speed moving satellites, the network topology in the whole inter-satellite communication process is time-varying. Therefore, based on this particularity, we propose the SpacePro constellation and combined the classical NeLS constellation for mathematical modeling, and the network topology and inter-satellite links are predicted and analyzed in their entire cycles. The RWA under the super satellite nodes with computation and storage functions algorithm (SCSA) is proposed and its effect is compared and analyzed in the wavelength resource requirement and connectivity. The results showed that the SCSA algorithm can save up to 50% in wavelength requirements, and the SpacePro constellation can achieve the same network connectivity effect with fewer on-board processors and wavelengths than NeLS. Satellite optical network node connectivity and wavelength demand are a trade-off problem. Studying the RWA problem in this scenario has a very critical reference for how the future satellite optical network performs wavelength usage configuration to help improve the performance of networks.
