Abstract

Virtual topology of WDM optical networks is often designed for some specific traffic matrix to get the best network performance. When traffic demand imposed on WDM optical networks changes, the network performance may degrade and even become unacceptable. So virtual topology need to be reconfigured. In previous works, virtual topology is reconfigured to achieve the best network performance, in which a large number of lightpaths need to be set up or torn down. In this paper, we try to get a tradeoff between the network performance and traffic disruption (or implementing cost). The problem of virtual topologyreconfiguration for changing traffic patterns is formulated as an optimization problem and a mixed integer linear programming (MILP) algorithm is presented. Numerical results show that a large cost reduction of reconfiguration can be achieved at the expense of network performance.
