Optical networks play a major role in supporting the traffic in backbone computer networks. Routing and Wavelength Assignment (RWA) is the technique used to establish a light-path from a source node to a destination node in a Wavelength Division Multiplexed (WDM) optical network. As an optical signal propagates through the network, the quality of the signal degrades due to physical layer impairments. To address this problem, in translucent WDM networks, the signal is regenerated at intervals. The main objective of this research is to propose a fast heuristic for dynamic lightpath allocation in translucent WDM networks and to compare the heuristic with an optimal algorithm that was proposed recently.
