We propose a novel dynamic provisioning scheme exploiting a new user-centric SLA metric, called delay tolerance, in availability-guaranteed shared-path-protected optical WDM networks. Significant reduction in blocking probability is achieved without sacrificing additional resources. (C)2009 Optical Society of America
