As multi-domain elastic optical networks (EONs) can enhance network scalability, extend service reach, and accommodate the inter-operability issues, it is very relevant to consider them in practical network operations. In this work, we study the problem of how to achieve energy-aware service provisioning in a multi-domain EON, where the optoelectronic regenerators only exist in border nodes. We consider dynamic lightpath requests and propose two algorithms, i.e., the greedy regenerator… CONTINUE READING
