Migration from fixed grid to flexible grid in optical networks

Abstract

Optical WDM backbone networks based on fixed spectrum grid have limitations such as low spectrum utilization and rigidity in provisioning for heterogeneous rates. Flexible-grid technologies can alleviate these limitations for on-demand provisioning. These technologies represent promising candidates for future optical networks supporting beyond-100-Gb/s… (More)
