Abstract
Avertical perspective, ranging frommanagement
and routing to physical layer options, concerning dynamic
network monitoring and compensation of impairments
(M&C), is given. Feasibility, reliability, and performance
improvements on reconfigurable transparent networks are
expected to arise from the consolidated assessment of network
management and control specifications, as a more accurate
evaluation of availableM&C techniques. In the network
layer, physical parameters aware algorithms are foreseen to
pursue reliable network performance. In the physical layer,
some new M&C methods were developed and rating of the
state-of-the-art reported in literature is given. Optical monitoring
implementation and viability is discussed.
