Elastic Optical Network (EON) has emerged as a solution to manage different kinds of services, improving network scalability and efficiency. However, EONs tend to present differences in service performance due to the uneven bandwidth requirements. In addition, uneven network performance among routes with different hop counts is a known issue, affecting not only optical networks or EONs, but also computer networks. We call this problem inter-routes unfairness. In this letter we propose strategies based on the trunk reservation technique to solve it. Our results show that it is possible to deal with the inter-routes unfairness problem. We believe that this kind of strategy opens opportunities to be applied for connections traveling longer and more loaded routes, that would lead to a minimum impact in the overall network performance.
