This paper proposes a new paradigm and strategy for resource management in optical networks considering that
resources allocated to a user or service can be squatted in by third parties temporarily in order to provide support
for emergency situations or allocate traffic from different priorities that experience a sudden increase of
demanded resources in the network. We introduce the strategies of Soft Squatting and Hard Squatting.
Moreover, we propose a model and a preliminary evaluation for fibre infrastructure sharing in all-optical
networks using the proposed squatting strategies.
