Abstract Optical fiber transport is the key technology to enable the delivery of fast and affordable bandwidth for all services, such as 5G/mobile, business and residential broadband, cloud computing, and video transport. Coherent optics, a game-changer optical fiber transport technology, has completely transformed optical transmission systems and enabled a widespread upgrade and new deployment of DWDM networks to speeds of 100 Gb/s, 200 Gb/s, and 400 Gb/s per wavelength.

Abstract:The research and innovation related to fifth-generation (5G) networks that has been carried out in recent years has decided on the fundamentals of the smart slice in radio access networks (RANs), as well as the autonomous fixed network operation. One of the most challenging objectives of beyond 5G (B5G) and sixth-generation (6G) networks is the deployment of mechanisms that enable smart end-to-end (e2e) network operation, which is required for the

Title: Super-channel spectrum saving optimization procedure in elastic optical networks Abstract: Optical networks have historically been overprovisioned for physical-layer conditions and capacity and, as such, operate uninterrupted over several years. By reducing system margins, network efficiency and cost savings could be improved without compromising network reliability. On the other hand, super-channel transmission has been identified as a suitable solution for supporting high-data-rate connectivity. NETCONF, along with YANG models, has been
