In this work, the authors consider the performance benefits of distribution reservation control schemes in partially-connected wavelength-routed all-optical WDM networks. In particular, the authors propose a new distributed reservation control scheme designed to work for general topology wavelength-routed WDM networks. In this new scheme, capacity reservation is invoked by always using the first shortest path if the direct route does not exist between all node (Demand) pairs.
