Abstract

Over the past few years, a significant increase in network traffic volumes has been observed. The ever growing bandwidth demands mean that a reliable and optimum service level needs to be ensured in communication systems for specific traffic categories. Optimal allocation and use of resources may be achieved through the use of call admission control (CAC) mechanisms implemented in network systems. The resource reservation mechanism and the threshold mechanism are two of the most popular CAC methods. In the reservation mechanisms, a certain number of resources is reserved for selected (predefined) services only. In the case of threshold mechanisms, the number of resources allocated to individual traffic classes depends on the network load. This article discusses the results of simulations verifying the impact of applied CAC mechanisms on the traffic characteristics in elastic optical network (EON) nodes with a Clos structure. Loss probability results obtained with the use of the simulator are presented as well.
