Impairment aware routing in metropolitan area optical networks


Impairment aware routing is considered to be a necessary precondition for the migration from opaque to all-optical networks. In opaque networks, the signal is regenerated at each node so that signal impairments are eliminated. However, in transparent optical networks, the optical signal reaches the receiver without having been regenerated, and, therefore… (More)
