Abstract: Wavelength Converters in WDM Optical Network, is one the essential component in today’s advanced research, but at the same time they are very expensive and it should be used in limited number to make effective use of Wavelength Converters. The two main criteria to be achieved is to reduce the overall blocking probability at an affordable cost and the other performance measures are within reasonable limits. To equip the node with the Wavelength converter for any network is crucial. There should be a minimal blocking probability at those particular nodes chosen to place the Wavelength Converter. A large margin decrease in the blocking probability will be easy for the placement of Wavelength Converter. Compared with the previous method of allocation, the results of the proposed adaptive algorithm can significantly reduce the blocking probability at higher range. The implementation of Adaptive algorithm shows that it is more cost effective to optimize the blocking performance. The blocking performance improvement hence led to the comparison of performance and efficiency other conventional methods with the proposed Adaptive algorithm is done.
