Abstract

Placement of regenerators in optical networks has. attracted the attention of recent research works in optical networks.. In this problem, we are given a network with an underlying. topology of a graph and with a set of requests that correspond. to paths in . There is a need to put a regenerator every certain. distance, because of a decrease in the power of the signal. In this. paper, we investigate the problem of minimizing the number of. locations to place the regenerators. We present analytical results. regarding the complexity of this problem, in four cases, depending. on whether or not there is a bound on the number of regenerators. at each node, and depending on whether or not the routing is. given or only the requests are given (and part of the solution is. also to determine the actual routing). These results include polynomial. time algorithms, NP-completeness results, approximation. algorithms, and inapproximability results.
