- We have studied the multicast routing and wavelength assignment (MC-RWA) problem in this paper, and focused on maximizing the network capacity and minimizing the resources used by a multicast session. We show that a multicast wavelength assignment problem is quite different from a unicast wavelength assignment problem. For a general multicast tree, the multicast wavelength assignment to maximize the network capacity is NP-hard. We have presented a heuristic wavelength assignment algorithm with two cost functions to maximize the network capacity. The first cost function has a time complexity of , but it cannot get a satisfactory improvement on the second cost function, which is simply developed from the idea of the Best-Fit technique with time complexity of in memory management or even a worse performance with increasing traffic load. The proposed algorithm tries to find an optimal combination of lightpaths and light-trees to serve a multicast request, and aims at maximizing the network capacity and reducing the wavelength resources. We will simulate this model to prove its performance in the future.
