Offline Impairment Aware RWA Algorithms for Cross-Layer Planning of Optical Networks

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Transparent optical networks are the enabling infrastructure for converged multi-granular networks in the Future Internet. The cross-layer planning of these networks considers physical impairments in the network layer design. This is complicated by the diversity of modulation formats, transmission rates, amplification and compensation equipments, or deployed fiber links. Thereby, the concept of Quality of Transmission (QoT) attempts to embrace the effects of the physical layer impairments, to introduce them in a multi-criterium optimization and planning process.
