SDN is a key technology to address the challenges in quasi-static and over-provisioned under-monitored EDFA-based optical links. We propose and experimentally demonstrate a SDN-enabled backpropagation correction technique to efficiently estimate and increase OSNR while minimizing remote network operations.
