    Open Access
    In this paper, we explore the benefits of analysing the optical spectrum of lightpaths for soft-failure detection and identification in Spectrum Switched Optical Network. We present a framework exploiting machine learning ...
  • Impact of traffic delay tolerance on elastic optical networks performance 

    Comellas Colomé, Jaume; Nourmohammadi, Farzaneh; Junyent Giralt, Gabriel (2020)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Elastic Optical Networks (EON) are considered as a valuable solution to enhance optical networks efficiency due to their superior network spectrum use. By breaking the traditional fixed grid of WDM networks, the spectrum ...
  • Modeling filtering penalties in ROADM-based networks with machine learning for QoT estimation 

    Mahajan, Ankush; Christodoulopoulos, Kostas; Martinez, Ricardo; Spadaro, Salvatore; Muñoz, Raul (2020)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Monitoring 3dB bandwidth and other spectrum related parameters at ROADMs provides information about quality of their filters. We propose a machine-learning model to estimate end-to-end filtering penalty for more accurate ...
  • Full-field, carrier-less, polarization-diversity, direct detection receiver based on phase retrieval 

    Chen, Haoshuo; Fontaine, Nicolas K.; Gené Bernaus, Joan M.; Ryf, Roland; Neilson, David T.; Raybon, Gregory (The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), 2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    We realize dual-polarization full-field recovery using intensity only measurements and phase retrieval techniques based on dispersive elements. 30-Gbaud QPSK waveforms are transmitted over 520-km standard single-mode fiber ...
  • Towards broadly optimum multi-core fiber designs 

    Gené Bernaus, Joan M.; Winzer, Peter J.; Chen, Haoshuo; Ryf, Roland; Hayashi, Tetsuya; Sasaki, Takashi (The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), 2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    We show that key multi-core fiber (MCF) design parameters depend only weakly on the application scenario, from data-center interconnects to submarine links, leading to transmission-distance-independent optimum MCF ...
  • Evaluating link latency in distributed SDN-based control plane architectures 

    Sgambelluri, Andrea; Casas, Xavier; Spadaro, Salvatore; Monti, Paolo (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2019)
    Conference report
