Energy efficiency in backbone optical networks can reduce the carbon footprint while preserving performance levels. When embedded in computational logic, core functional traits like lightpath routing,will be performed aiming at better resource utilization from an energy perspective. Simulating the procedure of energy-aware lightpath routing and establishment by means of software tools can lead to decisions about the characteristics a heuristic ...
