Abstract : Future optical networks, in particular Software Defined Optical Networks (SDONs), are expected to provide reconfigurable services while maintaining an efficient usage of wavelength resources. In this paper, we propose a Make-Before-Break (MBB) wavelength defragmentation process which minimizes the bandwidth requirement of the resulting provisioning. We next compare the latter provisioning with a minimum bandwidth provisioning that is not subject to MBB. The resulting solution process is thoroughly tested on various data and network instances. Numerical experiments show that, on average, the best seamless lightpath rerouting is never more than 5% away (less than 1% on average) from an optimal lightpath provisioning.
