Elastic Optical Network (EON) is a new optical technology proposed to overcome limitations of the currently used Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) technology. The key advantages of EONs are efficient use of spectrum resources compared to classical fixed-grid in WDM networks, and support of flexible modulation format conversion. Noteworthy trends observed in the last few years in communication networks are cloud computing and content-oriented services, provided by geographically dispersed data centers. Anycast transmission - defined as one-to-one-of-many - is attracting a lot of interest, since the network providers require cost-effective and scalable data delivery techniques in inter-data center networks.

In this talk, the Routing, Modulation and Spectrum Allocation (RMSA) problem in the context of dynamic routing for anycast and unicast traffic in EONs will be addressed. The focus will be on new adaptive and regenerator-aware algorithms for dynamic RMSA with the possibility of modulation change along the lightpath. The key goal of the algorithms is to improve the network performance under dynamic traffic scenarios in terms of blocking probability and usage of regenerators.


Michal Aibin is a second year Ph. D. student at Wrocław University of Technology. He received his master degree in Teleinformatics in 2012. His main research interests are optimization and modeling of networks, adaptive algorithms and software defined networks. His papers have been published in the most recognizable optical networks conferences in Europe: IEEE International Conference on Communication and International Conference on Transparent Optical Networks. Last year, he attended IEEE HPSR conference, held in Vancouver. He is the supervisor of the students group working on Java Enterprise Applications. Personally, he enjoys horseback riding and playing music.
