As optical spectrum as a service (OSaaS) is gaining traction among operators as a feasible way to avoid O-E-O signal regeneration at domain borders, methods to characterize the service without revealing any business-critical information are being developed.
In this talk, Kaida Kaeval will discuss the usability of profiles based on generalized signal-to-noise ratio (GSNR) to estimate the end-to-end performance of multi-domain disaggregated networks. She will explain how concatenated core-to-core and core-to-metro route performance can be computed based on individual link characterizations to enable achievable capacity estimations over the OSaaS. The session will outline how an accuracy of ±1.4dB has been achieved over a live network stretching 3116km, providing operators with a vital tool for estimating the end-to-end OSaaS performance and achievable capacity in a procurement phase or before service handover.
