Paper Abstract

Our proposed soft preemptive scheme was demonstrated highly effective at reducing the blocking probability and meanwhile guaranteeing the existing traffics' quality of service in wavelength-routed networks. In this paper, we focus our study on combining Soft Preemption and Wavelength Conversion. The performance analysis shows that the introduction of Wavelength Conversion can help enhance the advantages of Soft Preemption in reducing blocking and improving other performance metrics.
