Abstract: In this paper we propose a multi-path selection approach to minimize the energy consumption of the optical core network, especially OBS. The wavelength routed paths may have to forgo minimum distance paths and choose a path which is at a larger distance. This tends to degrade the QoS like BER and delay. Given the service requirement conditions, we propose to select the paths such that the overall energy consumed by the optical network decreases and at the same time maintain the service threshold conditions. By using an efficient optical control management mechanism, network nodes (WRN) can be set to ON or OFF states. We have developed a simple mathematical model which is used for the calculation of blocking probability of an OBS network.
