Abstract

This paper investigates hybrid immediate reservation (IR) and advance reservation (AR) service provisioning in elastic optical networks, with the objective to minimize IR/AR service conflicts. We design algorithms to coordinate service provisioning of IR and AR requests. Specifically, both proactive and reactive IR provisioning schemes are considered to minimize IR service failures. Our AR scheduling algorithm can coordinate AR service provisioning with various IR traffic patterns, balance spectrum utilization in both time and spectral domains, and reduce IR/AR service conflicts. Simulation results verify that our proposed IR + AR schemes can significantly reduce IR service failures as well as routing and spectrum allocation reconfigurations in IR service provisioning. Moreover, the results indicate that the proposed IR + AR schemes can achieve more performance gain from AR flexibility when compared with two existing benchmarks.
