The OptCom group introduces the Statistical Network Assessment Process at OFC 2016
Mattia Cantono, Roberto Gaudino and Vittorio Curri have presented at OFC 2016 the Statistical Network Assessment Process (SNAP). SNAP has been used to compare two different implementations of Flex-Rate Transceivers. In addition to this the concept of Nonlinear Penalty at a network level has been introduced. SNAP has also been used to make a comparison of three different Gaussian Noise based models, showing that the Incoherent GN (IGN) model is both sufficiently reliable and computationally efficient to be used in network related studies.
The slides of the talk given by Mattia Cantono can be found at the bottom of this post.
