MODIFIED DYNAMIC ONLINE ROUTING ALGORITHM AND REGENERATOR PLACEMENT IN WDM NETWORKS

Abstract
Dynamic Online Routing Algorithm (DORA) has been already proposed for conventional networks to distribute load evenly across the network. However, the exponential growth of the internet has placed heavy burdens on network management and control application when the existing protocols are used. Adding more resources to the network may temporarily remove congestion conditions. However, it is not a cost-effective solution in solving resource contention problems in the long run. The network providers are facing problems in setting up on-demand network tunnels in backbone or transport networks. The MDORA proposed in this work is useful to decide the optimum number of regenerators to be placed on each node. Placement of regenerator in all the nodes is not cost effective and hence in this work, techniques have been proposed to place the regenerators only in selected nodes. Node selection for regenerator placement is performed using fuzzy logic.
