We study online multicasting in WDM networks with shared light splitter bank. Our objective is to maximize the network throughput. It is desirable that the cost of realizing each multicast request be minimized, and the network throughput will be maximized ultimately through the cost saving on each individual request. We first propose a cost model for realizing an online multicast request under such network environments with limited light splitters and wavelength converters, which models the...[Show more]
