WDM Network Blocking Computation Toolbox - Blocking computation in WDM Networks for three different types of constraints.
The aim of this toolbox is to compute blocking probabilities in WDM networks. This work was based on , , ,  and user is referred to those papers for deeper study.
Because WDM networks are circuit switched loss networks blocking may occur because of lack of resources. Also in circuit switched networks many paths use the same links. This toolbox answers the question how different paths with different loads influence on each other and what is the blocking on each of the defined path.
Toolbox is capable of computing blocking for three different WDM network types: with no wavelength conversion, with full wavelength conversion and with limited range wavelength conversion. It is worth noting that case for full conversion can be usefull for any circuit switched network without additional constraints (i.e. wavelength continuity constraint in WDM), for example telephone network.
Toolbox contains also scripts for defining network structures (random networks, user defined networks) and traffic matrixes. Three graph algorithms for shortest path computation are also in this toe also in this toolbox (they aic matrix creation).
