In optical WDM networks, transmission of information along optical lines is advantageous since it has high transmission capacity, scalability, feasibility and also high reliability. But large amount of information is being carried; any problem during transmission can lead to severe damage to the data being carried. Hence it is essential to consider the routing as well as the wavelength assignment problems and then develop a combined solution for both the problems. In this paper, we propose to develop a routing and wavelength assignment algorithm for selecting the suitable alternate path for the data packets transmission. Two stages are based on the available bandwidth and the number of wavelength used in the link as construction of alternate paths, route and wavelength selection. In proposed work, Adaptive Routing and First-Fit Wavelength Assignment (AR-FFWA) algorithm to be used. For each pair of source and destination, the path with the minimum granularity values are selected as the primary path for data transmission, allocating the sufficient wavelength. This algorithm thus provides a reliable, dynamic path for the data transmission and Dynamic RMSA with HSMR algorithm to be used and the performances will be evaluated by using ns-2 simulation models. When we compared to existing system the overall blocking probability will be reduced to too low.
