In this paper, we present a practical VNT (virtual network topology) reconfiguration method for large-scale IP and optical networks with traffic matrix estimation considerations. We newly introduce a partial VNT reconfiguration algorithm with multiple transition stages. By dividing the whole VNT transition sequence into multiple transitions, estimation errors are calibrated at each stage by using network state information of prior stages. Because estimation errors are mainly due to the fewer information in the estimated traffic matrix calculation, our approach tries to increase the constraint conditions for traffic matrix estimation by introducing partial reconfiguration, and to relax the impact of estimation errors by limiting the number of optical-paths reconfigured at each stage. We also investigate the effectiveness of our proposal through simulations and clarify the robustness against estimation errors by using partial reconfiguration.
