Part of the Optical Networks book series (OPNW)


This chapter presents an overview of the most recent modeling and simulation techniques for the analysis and engineering of all the major devices and network elements that comprise a state-of-the-art optical communications system and network. The subject is presented by creating different abstraction levels in device modeling and building on the simulation fundamentals through computer modeling paradigms.
