Computing the single-link performance measurement for elastic optical OFDM

Computing the single-link performance measurement for elastic optical OFDM Elastic optical networks based on orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) have emerged as the preferred technology for future optical networks because of their good spectral efficiency and flexibility. In OFDM optical networks, multiple subcarriers can be allocated to accommodate both subwavelength and superwavelength traffic. In this work, we developed an algorithm based on the superposition concept in electrical networks using the Kaufman/Delbrouck recursion model to accurately compute the revenue loss in the OFDM-based single link. The algorithm is applicable when there are many call types requesting diverse numbers of contiguous subcarriers offered to a link with numerous subcarriers.
