We propose and simulate a new mechanism to protect against the failure of AI-based QoT prediction by assigning OSNR margins for working lightpath using the AI-based prediction method and for protection lightpath using the traditional, conservative method. This guarantees reliability of lightpath services, while not significantly increasing network spectrum resources used.
