The continuous increasing of the Internet traffic has brought serious concerns about capacity exhaustion of the optical infrastructure in a medium term horizon. Taking into account the optical networks, comprising the Internet backbone, the strategies to avoid this catastrophic scenario point to the development of new technologies that enable the capacity expansion, as well as to a better utilization of spectrum network resources. The elastic optical network, considered as a realistic perspective for the infrastructure, improve the required spectrum and the efficiency of resources utilization, but it is not a definitive solution, since it suffers with the spectrum fragmentation problem. Therefore, this propose aims to reach new techniques to improve the spectrum utilization in multiservice scenarios with different bandwidth demands. Besides that, it is intended to deep the service fairness studies, as well as approach the inter-routes fairness, considering the operation of an elastic optical network. (AU)
