In this thesis, we study the effect of employing limited-range wavelength converters in all-optical networks. We study the performance of the network in terms of blocking probability (the percentage of blocked calls). In the network simulation, we adopt a regular topology based on a de Bruijn graph of degree 4 and diameter 5. Most of the previous work has assumed that wavelength converters translate a wavelength to any other wavelength. In this work, we employ realistic all-optical converters to study the performance of the network according to the following parameters: the number of converters per node, the conversion range of converters, the total number of wavelengths in the network and the number of local wavelengths that a node can use for transmission.
