The aim of this toolbox is to compute blocking probabilities in WDM networks. This work was based on [1], [2], [3], [4] 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 toolbox (they are used for traffic matrix creation).

hai all,
i've question about this program..in 'blocking_sim_script.m'
thre is a channel which i can change.
Can any one tell me, channel selection in the program based on what?
please help me :(

hi, i am looking for the work directory, and please let me know how i can start running and using this toolbox to create my own design and simulate it. thanks

guys guys, somehow, with my little knowledge about matlab, I managed to install the toolbox.

My request now is: can someone show me how to use the toolbox ?

I am very interested in using the function create-load-uniform. I just want like a sample files and input i can create/add to use the function.

Thanks a lot !

please can u tell me how to install the toolbox . I kept looking for the toobox directory and work directory and i cant seem to find them.
Also, I don't understand how to change the PATHDEF file. there are 3 of them, which one to choose ??

This is very important to a project I am working on.

Thank you !

to edit PATHDEF
open ...\MATLAB\R2007b\toolbox\local\
find pathdef.m, edit document like a .txt file

I have some problems using this toolbox. Can somebody tell me how do this part:

d) Edit PATHDEF and add at the end of the file:

matlabroot,'\toolbox\wdm;',...
matlabroot,'\toolbox\wdm\examples;',...
matlabroot,'\toolbox\wdm\graphs;',...
matlabroot,'\toolbox\wdm\networks;',...
matlabroot,'\toolbox\wdm\rla;',...
matlabroot,'\toolbox\wdm\simulation;',...
matlabroot,'\work\networks; ',...

Thank you....
