In this article we focus on lightpath adaptation under time-varying traffic in a dynamic elastic optical network (EON) implementing flexgrid optical technology. In the considered scenario, a number of IP/MPLS metro area networks performing traffic aggregation are connected through a core EON. We explore the elastic spectrum allocation (SA) capability of EON and, in this context, we study the effectiveness of three alternative SA policies, namely Fixed, Semi-Elastic and Elastic. For each elastic SA policy, we develop a dedicated algorithm which is responsible for adaptation of spectrum allocated to lightpath connections in response to traffic changes. The evaluation is performed for a set of network scenarios, each one characterized by a different level of traffic aggregation, and hence different traffic variability. As simulation results show, the effectiveness of SA policies highly depends on both the aggregation level and maximum lightpath capacity. In particular, in our experiments up to 21% more traffic is served with the proposed elastic SA than with the fixed SA in a network with low aggregation and high lightpath capacity.
