Planning Optical Networks for Unexpected Traffic Growth
A lightpath configuration algorithm considering a multi-period traffic model is presented and evaluated to a realistic German core network study.~Strategically exploiting BVT excess capacity, we show that offered traffic can be carried up to an additional five years in all traffic growth scenarios.
