The increasing complexity of optical networks designed to meet a multitude of services generates massive amounts of data. In addition, any service interruption, even momentary, can cause huge data losses, leading to bad customer experience. Machine learning has been proposed and applied in several fields in the last decades. In this study, the Network Technology Laboratory is introducing a tool that estimates the quality of transmission (QoT) of lightpaths before their implementation in the network, based on machine learning algorithms. This tool could help in routing and wavelength assignment by first discarding bad QoT connections. An evaluation of three machine learning techniques for optical networks was performed: the support vector machine (SVM), the K nearest neighbours (K-NN) and the random forest (RF).
