Optical networks using Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) would be a promising platform for bandwidth-intensive services. Their inherently high, data carrying capacity coupled with fast and flexible switching using optical switches and digital cross-connects, are expected to make them commonly used for integrated data and multimedia based services in the near future. Efficient utilization of wavelength resources and low switching costs would become crucial in promoting their wide spread deployment.
