The rapid growth of the technologies, high bandwidth applications and cloud data centers consume heavy internet service. So, the consumer of the internet expects a high capacity medium for communication. The Elastic Optical Network (EON) provides a flexible and reliable transmission service for the consumers. The spectrum fragmentation is a key challenge in EON. In simple terms, unaligned Frequency Slots (FSs) in the network are referred to as fragmented spectrum, while in defragmentation, the available FSs need to be rearranged to create room for the new connection requests. The problem in defragmentation occurs due to the lack of a continuous spectrum and it leads to depreciation in spectrum usage and simultaneously increasing the Blocking Probability (BP) which disrupts the majority of the existing connections in the network. Several techniques and approaches were suggested to reduce the possibility of disruption and reconfiguration in the network while defragmenting the frequency slots. This paper proposes a new algorithm to overcome the drawbacks and improvement in the quality of service of the network. The proposed algorithm holds the approach of proactive and reactive along with the meta-heuristic nature-inspired optimization technique called Jellyfish Search Optimization (JSO). The proposed combination, PR-DF-JFSO outperforms well in terms of spectrum utilization, network efficiency, and quality of service offered when compared to the state-of-the-art spectrum defragmentation algorithms according to the results of experiments done using standard quality metrics.
