DISEÑO Y OPTIMIZACIÓN DE REDES ÓPTICAS MULTI-CAPA CONSCIENTES DEL GASTO ENERGÉTICO
Abstract
Translucent optical networks have emerged as potential yet feasible candidates to bridge the gap between the opaque and transparent network architectures. By allowing electrical 3R signal regeneration only at selected points in the network, translucent architectures represent a cost-effective, power-ef¿cient solution. Concurrently, forecasts predicting highly dynamic traf¿c patterns make it crucial for next-generation transport networks to engage highly agile technologies that include sub-wave...
