The quality of transmission (QoT) estimators, envisaged to optimize the impairment constraint routing and wavelength assignment (IC-RWA) in optical transparent networks, are often assessed in a steady configuration by means of re-circulation loops and/or transmissions simulations. In such context the powers of the WDM channels are regularly fixed to a given set of values related to a given point of the periodical transmission. But in installed systems these powers may become uneven, for… CONTINUE READING
