To overcome the inefficiency of the rigid frequency allocation in traditional wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) networks, the idea of slicing the optical spectrum for elastic and flexible bandwidth allocation has attracted significant interest recently. The resulting network, namely, the spectrum-sliced elastic optical path (SLICE) network, can facilitate both the super-wavelength and sub-wavelength traffic accommodation by allocating an appropriate number of sub-carriers. Compared to… CONTINUE READING
