The benefit of migrating from static to dynamic WDM networks is evaluated, for the first time, in terms of energy consumption. Results show a clear benefit of dynamic operation for traffic loads < 0.5. 1. Introduction Currently, telecommunication networks have been reported to account for 1-10% of the world's energy consumption [1]. Given the ever(More)
— Greening of the Internet has become one of the main challenges for the research community. Optical networks can provide an energy efficient solution, but it has become crucial to assess its power efficiency. In this context, dynamic operation of WDM networks is expected to provide significant power savings when compared to static operation; however, its(More)
