Abstract
Spatial Division Multiplexing (SDM) arises as the only solution to overcome the capacity limits of singlemode optical fibres (SMFs). Among the different SDM flavours, Multi-Core Fibres (MCFs) are gaining interest thanks to their low inter-core crosstalk (XT). In this context, Flex-Grid is envisioned as the technology that enables the efficient allocation of connections in SDM-based optical networks. Despite the benefits that the combination of Flex-Grid/SDM brings, the necessary guard-bands betw...
