In optical networks, degradation of the Quality of Transmission (QoT) can be the outcome of soft-failures in optical devices, like Optical Transponders, Wavelength Selective Switches (WSS) and Optical Amplifiers (OA). In this paper, we assume time-dependent degradations on ROADMs and OAs. Specifically, several degradations are considered: i) the noise figure can increase linearly over time due to the aging of the components; ii) the maximum of optical output power of the amplifiers can decrease because of the degradation in the pump lasers of the EDFAs; iii) aging effects, e.g., due to fiber splices; and iv) the OSNR can vary caused by frequency drift of WSSs due to temperature variations. Our proposal for degradation detection and soft-failure localization includes algorithms that are able to detect and localize the degradation in early stages and facilitate network diagnosis.In addition, we propose an architecture where the control plane consist of a network controller, a Monitoring and Data Analytics system and a QoT tool based on GNPy that are interconnected with each other.
