Elastic spectrum allocation in flexgrid optical networks

Abstract

In this work it is presented the study and the obtained results when applying elasticity in flexible optical networks using flexgrid technology and with objective to evaluate a future line of work that helps to solve the routing and spectrum allocation within next-generation optical networks. For this project, a set of elasticity schemes is proposed and these schemes are evaluated solving the network planning problem proposed, in which traffic demands vary in time. Moreover, in order to evaluate the schemes in realistic network scenarios, both Mathematical Programming and a heuristic are proposed. Finally, the main conclusions regarding the use of elasticity are presented for concluding this work.
