We evaluate a service provisioning mechanism to strike a balance between overly pessimistic/optimistic in-band crosstalk penalty estimation in meshed networks. Simulations show that optimizing in-band crosstalk margins according to the topology and routing pattern can help extend capacity for lower-cost networks with high nodal degrees.
