Development of RWA tools for the design, operation and migration of terrestrial and submarine coherent networks

The project covers the design and optimization of long-haul and ultra long-haul wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) networks. The objective is to develop routing and wavelength assignment (RWA) algorithms for next-generation terrestrial and undersea networks that are based on the use of high-speed dual-polarization coherent transponders. The goal is to improve the performance and accuracy of the RWA results and therefore to get more powerful tools for increasing network capacity and planning network migrations.
