Routing in Degree-constrained FSO Mesh Networks

Free registration required

Executive Summary

This paper addresses the routing problem in packet switching free-space optical (FSO) mesh networks. FSO mesh networks are emerging as broadband communication networks because of their high bandwidth (up to Gbps), low cost, and easy installation. Physical layer topology design of degree-constrained FSO mesh networks has been studied in a recent communication. In this paper, authors propose four different routing algorithms, and evaluate their performances through simulations for a number of FSO mesh networks with different topologies and nodal degrees. The performance parameter against which authors evaluate these algorithms is the mean end-to-end delay.
