Abstract

We investigate cost-efficient upgrade strategies for capacity enhancement in optical backbone networks enabled by C+L-band optical line systems. A multi-period strategy for upgrading network links from the C band to the C+L band is proposed, ensuring physical-layer awareness, cost effectiveness, and less than 0.1% blocking. Results indicate that the performance of an upgrade strategy depends on efficient selection of the sequence of links to be upgraded and on the time instant to upgrade, which are either topology or traffic dependent. Given a network topology, a set of traffic demands, and growth projections, our illustrative numerical results show that a well-devised upgrade strategy can achieve superior cost efficiency during the capacity upgrade to C+L enhancement.
