To support fast Internet traffic growth, optical transport networks need to increase capacity in an efficient manner. For better capacity efficiency, next-generation optical transmission techniques such as optical orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (O-OFDM) and Nyquist WDM have been extensively investigated, and optical networks that take advantage of these new efficient transmission techniques (termed “elastic optical networks”) are also being widely studied. These advances are reflected from the levels of optical devices such as bandwidth-variable wavelength selective switch (WSS), subsystems such as bandwidth-variable reconfigurable add/drop multiplexer (ROADM), to networks such as OpenFlow-based network control plane and associated network-level design and optimization.
