Abstract: In this paper we consider the routing and wavelength assignment problem in a wavelenth routed all optical network. Inspired by techniques from artifical intelligence, in particular the Blocking Island (BI) abstraction, we propose a simple and intelligent routing and wavelength assignment (RWA) algorithm: BI_RWA. This algorithm can be used in arbitrarily connected optical networks. In addition, it is general enough such that with some simple modifications, it can be applied to different optical networking scenarios: static or dynamic traffic, single or multiple fiber links between node pairs, with or without wavelength converters. We have conducted simulation experiments to evaluate the performance of our algorithm. The simulation is carried out in two parts: static traffic and dynamic traffic. The results will demonstrate that our RWA algorithm outperforms state-of-the-art related algorithms.
