Flex-grid all-optical interconnect supporting transparent multi-hop connection in data centers
2015 (English)Conference paper (Refereed)Text
In this paper a novel flex-grid all-optical interconnect scheme is proposed for data center, where a transparent multi-hop connection can be realized by using optical bypass rather than going through optical-electric-optical conversions, enhancing energy efficiency for inter-rack communications. Moreover, elastic spectrum allocation is adopted in the proposed scheme to increase the resource utilization and scalability. Transmission performance evaluation has been carried out to verify the feasibility of the proposed scheme.
