In this paper, after proposing a novel metric, i.e., global resource capacity (GRC), to quantify the embedding potential of each substrate node, we propose an efficient heuristic virtual network embedding (VNE) algorithm, called as GRC-VNE. The proposed algorithm aims to maximize the revenue and to minimize the cost of the infrastructure provider (InP).… (More)
We investigate the principle of how dynamic service provisioning fragments the spectral resources on links along a path, and propose corresponding RMSA algorithms to alleviate spectrum fragmentation in dynamic network environments.
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)
Spectrum fragmentation limits the efficiency of spectrum utilization in elastic optical networks (EONs). This paper studies how to take advantage of the centralized network control and management provided by software-defined EONs (SD-EONs) for realizing OpenFlow-assisted implementation of online defragmentation (DF). We first discuss the overall system… (More)
—This paper provides theoretical and experimental studies of radio-frequency (RF) photonics processing techniques applicable in subcarrier-multiplexed optical-label switching (OLS) communications systems. The paper provides an overview of various label-coding technologies and introduces subcarrier multiplexing (SCM) as an attractive technology for OLS… (More)
—This paper proposes and demonstrates a simulation model to systematically investigate jitter accumulations in cascaded all-optical 2R regenerators. The simulation results indicate that when the pattern dependence from the memory effect is minimized , the jitter accumulation depends critically on the degree of the regenerative nonlinearity. Studies of… (More)
—Empowered by the optical orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (O-OFDM) technology, flexible online service provisioning can be realized with dynamic routing, modulation, and spectrum assignment (RMSA). In this paper, we propose several online service provisioning algorithms that incorporate dynamic RMSA with a hybrid single-/multi-path routing (HSMR)… (More)
