Lightpath Management in SDN-Based Elastic Optical Networks With Power Consumption Considerations


Elastic optical networks (EONs) are increasingly used to interconnect data centers. As interdatacenter traffic is expected to continue to grow at high rates for the foreseeable future, it becomes imperative to address the respective growth in power consumption within EONs. In this paper, we take the first steps toward enhancing the energy efficiency of… (More)
