We introduce the new concept of an elastic filterless optical network and propose an efficient heuristic algorithm for solving the static routing and spectrum assignment problem. Our simulation results obtained for different network topologies under multi-period traffic show increasing bandwidth savings with the growth of traffic load compared to a fixed-grid scenario. We also show the benefits of periodical spectrum defragmentation.
