Abstract

In this thesis the problem of Logical Topology Design for WDM Networks has been considered. Optical networks form the backbone of our communication needs, so logical topology design forms a critical part of network design. The physical topology consists of nodes and fiber optic links. Lightpaths are set up on physical topology, which represent a optical connection between two end nodes. The maximum total traffic on a logical link gives us the congestion of the network. The tabu search meta-heuristic opens interesting avenue to expedite finding the optimal logical topology. For a given physical topology, and traffic pattern our objective is to optimize logical topology, using tabu search so as to minimize the network congestion.Dept. of Computer Science.
