Computing blocking probabilities in survivable WDM optical networks

Computing blocking probabilities in survivable WDM optical networks One of the most important performance measurements in wavelength-division multiplexing (WDM) networks is the call blocking probability. In this paper, we present an approximate analytical method to evaluate the blocking probabilities in survivable WDM networks with dynamically arriving connection requests. Our approach utilizes the wavelength independence whereby WDM network can be regarded as an aggregation of disjoint single wavelength sub-networks with a common physical topology. In each single wavelength sub-network, we derive the calculation of the blocking probability from an exact analysis. We assume dedicated protection with fixed routing and either first-fit or random wavelength assignment. Simulation results demonstrate the accuracy of the proposed method.
