Recently, optical orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing technology has attracted intensive research interest because spectrum-sliced elastic optical networks (EONs) can be constructed based on it. In this paper, we investigate how to serve multicast requests over EONs with multicast-capable routing, modulation level, and spectrum assignment (RMSA).(More)
This article discusses the technologies for realizing highly efficient data migration and backup for big data applications in elastic optical inter-data-center (inter-DC) networks. We first describe the impacts of big data applications on underlying network infrastructure and introduce the concept of flexible-grid elastic optical inter-DC networks. Then we(More)
With its agile spectrum management in the optical layer, the flexible-grid elastic optical network can become a promising physical infrastructure to efficiently support the highly dynamic traffic in future datacenter interconnections (DCIs). While the resulting elastic optical DCIs (EO-DCIs) need to serve requests that not only require bandwidth resources(More)
We investigate dynamic advanced reservation (AR) multicast in data center networks over elastic optical infrastructure, and propose several algorithms to realize all-optical AR multicasting for data center backup and migration by considering request scheduling and RSA jointly. Introduction Nowadays, with the boosting up of bandwidth-intensive applications,(More)
In this paper, we study the service provisioning schemes for dynamic advance reservation (AR) multicast requests in elastic optical networks (EONs). We first propose several algorithms that can handle the service scheduling and routing and spectrum assignment (RSA) of AR multicast requests jointly, including an integrated two-dimensional fragmentation-aware(More)
