Module Selection Algorithm Based on WSS/SSS-Hybrid AoD Node in Dynamic Elastic Optical Networks
Driven by the emerging applications based on Internet, optical backbone networks need to improve their transmission capabilities while ensuring high reliability, flexibility, and scalability. Elastic optical networks and space-division multiplexing optical networks are seen as the potential solutions. In order to implement these technologies, innovative nodes are required to provide flexibility, reliability, and scalability for the optical networks. Architecture on Demand (AoD) node is a new type of elastic optical node structure proposed in the recent years and can dynamically provide a customizable structure according to the exchange and processing requirements of the network traffic. Spectrum Selector Switches (SSS) is one of the key modules but has not been widely used because of its excessive cost. To solve the problem of how to select the Wavelength Selective Switch (WSS)/SSS coexistence in the current network, we propose a pre-built algorithm for the modules in the AoD nodes. Simulation results show that the proposed algorithm performs better than the benchmarks in different network scenarios and provides a solution to the gradual upgrade of AoD nodes.
