There has been a lot of effort in our industry to develop analytical and numerical models for accurate estimation of quality of transmission (QoT), which is essential to efficiently design and operate optical transport networks. However, most researchers do not have access to real optical network data to validate and improve their models. We provide data from our production optical transport network on GitHub, hoping it can be of some help for our community to advance in this area. This letter describes how to use the open-source data.
