Reducing Power Consumption in Wavelength Routed Networks by Selective Switch Off of Optical Links


In this paper, the power consumption of a transparent circuit-switched wavelength-division multiplexing (WDM) optical network is evaluated, considering client flow protection requirements and the daily traffic variability. Moreover, a simple heuristic algorithm is applied to the considered network scenario to reduce the power consumption of optical links… (More)
