Abstract

An enhanced version of hardware accelerated QoT
estimation tool in impairment-aware optical network to support
Cloud Computing is designed and evaluated against the different
number of lightpaths and wavelengths per link. It outperforms
the software version by 28 times in the order of millisecond
for a single computation, and up to 3 times more for multiple
computations. It sharply decreases the lightpath assessment time
and accelerates lightpath provisioning with the objective of
making it suitable for incorporation in a dynamic and realtime
environment. It enables Cloud Computing based timing critical
applications which need fast response and low delay.
