We present a novel constraint-based routing (CBR) algorithm, which accurately estimates linear and nonlinear physical-layer impairments of 43 and 107 Gb/s channels with duobinary and DQPSK modulation formats by combining fast analytical models for assessing the linear transmission impairments with a split-step Fourier approach optimized for computational speed to estimate the nonlinear intra-channel effects. Our CBR algorithm allows a significant increase in average and maximum transparent distance and thus a reduction in the number of required regenerators.
