An optical signal-to-noise ratio (OSNR) aware lightpath provisioning mechanism (OSNR-LPM) is proposed for distributed optical networks. This OSNR-LPM takes the OSNR value of the lightwave along the lightpath into consideration when establishing the lightpath for the connection request using resource reservation protocol-traffic engineering (RSVP-TE). Moreover, the OSNR-LPM makes full advantages of the OSNR monitoring function in each node and assigns the lightwave by judging the OSNR value carried by the signaling message in order to guarantee the reliable establishment of the lightpath in the data plane.The simulation results show that the OSNR-LPM outperforms other lightpath assignment mechanisms in terms of real blocking probability in the data plane.
