In multi-domain elastic optical networks with alien wavelengths, each domain needs to consider intradomain and interdomain alien traffic to estimate and guarantee the required quality of transmission (QoT) for each lightpath and perform provisioning operations. This paper experimentally demonstrates an alien wavelength performance monitoring technique and machine-learning-aided QoT estimation for lightpath provisioning of intradomain/interdomain traffic. Testbed experiments demonstrate modulation format recognition, QoT monitoring, and cognitive routing for a 160 Gbaud alien multi-wavelength lightpath. By using experimental training datasets from the testbed and an artificial neural network, we demonstrated an accurate optical-signal-to-noise ratio prediction with an accuracy of ~95% when using 1200 data points.
