Abstract

In order to address the challenges of tackling the ever-increasing demand for data and voice services while facing diminishing financial returns from deployed networks, efficient utilization of available resources in optical networks is required. In this paper, an efficient set of algorithms is developed for selecting a cost-optimal subset of commercially available fixed or parameterized modules such as dispersion compensation modules and optical amplifiers subject to a wide range of engineering and financial constraints. A comprehensive analysis is performed on these algorithms, and their applicability is confirmed by carrying out simulation experiments to allocate resources for typical optical links.
