The future Internet will require the transport of a wide range of services including high bandwidth one-to-many applications, with a dynamic interconnection of devices. WDM layer support realizes such services in a transparent, reliable and efficient way. Most of the recent studies have been focused on efficiently building and configuring light-paths for unicast or light-trees for multicast in isolation, and do not take existing traffic demands and configuration into consideration. In this paper the authors consider a dynamic design problem of integrated traffic in a realistic WDM mesh network.
