A Multilayer Approach for Optical Networks Planning

Bruno C. Coutinho, Fabio O. Lima, Anilton S. Garcia, Ivan T. Lima Jr, Marcelo E. V. Segatto


With the increase in demand to Backbone networks, one became fundamental
the application of new telecommunication technologies for ecient
use of devices and optical links, such as xPSK modulations with dual polarization,
dispersion compensating bers, coherent detection and digital processing
signals. Thus, network planning using analytical models have been
proposed in the last years for this purpose. In this paper we propose the use
of numerical simulations in wavelength-division multiplexing networks planning
via a novel iterative method with high-performance processing, which
does an analysis of the quality of transmission in transparent networks.
