Channel Frequency Optimization in Optical Networks Based on Gaussian Noise Model

Abstract : To make the most of limited spectrum resources in optical fibers, we propose to improve the quality of transmission leveraging the optimization of channel center frequencies in optical networks with flex-grid. For point-to-point communication, we first compute the optimal transmit power that minimizes the physical layer impairment (PLI) by using the Gaussian Noise (GN) model. We then derive the theoretical PLI-aware provisioning capacity in fixed-grid optical networks and further formulate an optimization model that can estimate the maximum number of requests that can be provisioned in flex-grid optical networks. Numerical simulation results reveal that with the help of channel center frequency optimization, 8.7% capacity improvement can be achieved in flex-grid optical networks. The SNR margin improvement is also demonstrated in both point-to-point optical communication and optical rings.
