Abstract

Multicast communication is the concurrent transmission of data from one source node to many destination nodes. It is widely deployed in high performance computing and communication networks. In this article, wide-sense nonblocking multicast communication is studied in wavelength division multiplexing networks namely modified linear array, unidirectional and bidirectional modified ring networks. The sufficient and necessary condition on the minimum wavelength number required for the network to be wide-sense nonblocking is derived for each of the above network topologies under longest link first routing technique which employs approximately half the number of hops when compared with networks without modification. An explicit wavelength allotment technique for multicast assignment is also given for each of the above network topologies.
