In this paper, the authors have proposed a restricted shared protection scheme in wavelength convertible optical network. In their proposed approach, they have included both alternate path routing and partial placement of wavelength converters for reduction of blocking probability. The simulation result shows the performance of their proposed approach is better than the existing protection schemes. All Optical Networks have become an efficient mean to fulfill the tremendous demand of bandwidth due to skyrocketed increase of internet users.
