In this letter, we evaluate the performance of Optical Cross Connect (OXC) architectures equipped with limited-range wavelength converters. Performance will be evaluated according to both an optimum and a random output wavelength assignment strategy. Analytical and simulation results show the possibility to reduce the conversion degree of the Wavelength Converters while keeping network performance high.
