Dynamic photonic networks rely on colorless, non-directional Reconfigurable Optical Add/Drop Multiplexer (ROADM) nodes to enable rapid re-routing of wavelength channels without optoelectronic conversion. We report numerical simulations of the wavelength contention that can occur in such multi-degree ROADM nodes. Intra-node blocking rates and transponder(More)
We show that blocking in dynamic networks of colorless, non-directional ROADMs is tolerant to intra-node contention when contention-aware routing/wavelength assignment (RWA) algorithms are used. An optional client-side cross-connect enables low blocking with simpler RWA variants.
In this paper, we address the problem of traffic grooming and regenerator placement in a WDM optical network in which lightpaths are hop-constrained by physical impairments. The efficient placement of regenerators and electronic grooming equipment at ROADM nodes for a given network topology is required such that all traffic demands can be supported with(More)
A dynamic and flexible network node architecture using modulation-flexible universal transceivers is proposed for beyond 100G transport and in-service network optimization. By sharing universal transceivers through a crossconnect switch, 20% reduction of universal transceivers is realized under dynamic traffic condition.
The advent of reconfigurable optical add/drop multiplexers with colorless and non-directional add/drop ports enables transponders and regenerators to be pre-deployed, without a priori knowledge of which wavelength or direction they will eventually serve. We study pre-deployment of optical regenerators as a means to drastically reduce the provisioning time,(More)
In this paper we address the problem of constrained optimization (ILP formulation) and propose a set of heuristic algorithms for assigning light-trails [1–4,7,10] to WDM ring networks to facilitate IP centric dynamic communication at the optical layer. A light-trail is a generalization of a lightpath such that multiple nodes can take part in communication(More)
Using numerical simulation of a dynamic network, we quantify the intra-node blocking occurring in colorless, non-directional Reconfigurable Optical Add/Drop Multiplexers (ROADMs). Designs including a client-side fiber cross connect are shown to offer lower blocking probability.
