Multiobjective Optimization in Optical Networks

Benjamín Barán; Diego P. Pinto-Roa    Polytechnic, National University of Asuncion - UNA, Asuncion, Paraguay


This chapter presents common optical network problems from a new multiobjective point of view. Putting an optical network to work requires design, management, and protection of the network; therefore, a typical problem is chosen for each of these three areas: (1) wavelength-converter allocation (WCA) at the design phase, (2) routing and wavelength assignment at the management phase, and (3) p-cycles for protection. All of the example problems are considered from a pure multiobjective perspective, demonstrating the advantages of using a multiobjective approach to broaden ...
