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.
Fernando Guiomar, post-doctoral researcher at the OptCom group, won the Student Innovation Award of the Photonics 21 Initiative. Fernando won this award for its work related to "High performance and efficient digital signal processing algorithms".
Congratulations from the whole OptCom group to him!
