An increasing number of studies about flexgrid-based elastic optical networks are currently being carried out by industry as well as academic research teams. As access to real test-beds is limited, there is a lack of effective tools that emulate realistic scenarios for testing algorithms and network architectures. In this paper, we present a simulation framework based on an active stateful Path Computation Element (PCE) with Global Concurrent Optimization (GCO) for flexgrid optical networks. The simulator is fully configurable and allows implementing and testing new algorithms and architectures easily and quickly.
