Paper Abstract

Optical Reach (OR) is the maximum distance along a route of wavelength-routed optical network (WRON), over which an optical signal can travel without any optical/electrical/optical (O/E/O) regeneration. In the first phase, this paper determines the required maximum optical transmit power at source nodes to achieve a given network-wide OR for a specified maximum number of intermediate nodes in the WRON topology under consideration. Subsequently, the paper examines the impact of OR on dynamically-provisioned WRONs, considering transparent (without O/E/O) as well as translucent (with O/E/O) scenarios.
