A Dynamic Bulk Provisioning Framework for Concurrent Optimization in PCE-Based WDM Networks

A centralized network control and management plane, such as the one based on a Path Computation Element (PCE), is highly beneficial in terms of resource optimization in wavelength division multiplexing optical networks. Benefits of centralized provisioning are even more evident when connection requests are provisioned in batches, i.e., they allow a better use of network resources via concurrent optimization. In this study, a dynamic bulk provisioning framework is presented with the objective of optimizing the use of network resources that also presents, as an additional benefit, the ability to yield a reduction of the control plane overhead.
