With the application of optical add-drop multiplexers, wavelength assignment has become an important issue in SONET/WDM design. Among wavelength assignment methods, circle construction is of great importance. In this paper, we propose a novel matrix based circle construction algorithm for all-to-all uniform traffic in a bidirectional SONET/WDM ring.
