We are trying to study the traffic grooming problem by minimizing overall network cost that includes the transceivers required as well as the number of wavelengths. A mathematical formulation of the traffic grooming problem in mesh networks is proposed. We also describe a heuristic using blocking island (BI) paradigm. Simulations have been carried out to prove effectiveness of our heuristic.
