Abstract

The spectrum allocated to an end-to-end connection between the source and destination nodes varies dynamically with time (denoted as time-varying traffic). For serving time-varying traffic in an elastic optical network (EON), the spectrum allocated for the connection can be expanded or contracted to meet the traffic requirement. Moreover, using multipath routing scheme can more flexibly utilize spectrum resources than using single-path routing in a dynamic scenario, since it splits a traffic request into multiple small size connections and individually transmitting them through several optical paths. In this paper, the Spectrum Expansion/Contraction Problem (SECP) for multipath routing on EONs with time-varying traffic is studied. The path selecting policy (PSP), expansion and contraction algorithms are proposed and examined through simulations. Simulations show that the proposed algorithms can achieve good results.
