Abstract
The Elastic Optical Network (EON) architecture has been proposed in response to the large capacity and diverse traffic granularity needs of the future Internet. By breaking the fixed-grid spectrum allocation of WDM networks, EONs increase the flexibility in terms of connection provisioning. The appropriate-sized optical spectrum is allocated to each connection depending on its requested bandwidth. The main weakness of EON, under dynamic traffic conditions, stems from spectrum fragmentation. This...
