Wavelength Defragmentation for Seamless Migration


Dynamic traffic in optical networks leads to spectrum fragmentation, which significantly reduces network performance, i.e., increases blocking rate and reduces spectrum usage. Telecom operators face the operational challenge of operating non-disruptive defragmentation, i.e., within the make-before-break paradigm when dealing with lightpath rerouting in wavelength division multiplexed (WDM) fixed-grid optical networks. In this paper, we propose a make-before-break (MBB) Routing and Wavelength Assignment (RWA) defragmentation process, which provides the best possible lightpath network provisioning, i.e., with minimum bandwidth requirement. We tested extensively the models and algorithms we propose on four network topologies with different GoS (Grade of Service) defragmentation triggering events. We observe that, for a given throughput, the spectrum usage of the best make-before-break lightpath rerouting is always less than 2.5% away from that of an optimal lightpath provisioning.
