In the present paper, we estimate the transmission reach of the optical signals through several state-of-the-art multi-core fibers reported in the literature considering ASE noise and inter-core crosstalk. Using these estimations, we next assess the resource efficiency of Flex-grid/SDM backbone network deployments using the considered multi-core fibers against currently available multi-fiber link solutions.
