Chapter 10. Simulations of WDM Systems

This chapter discusses the basic aspects of simulation in WDM networks. It is intended to add practical impetus to the theories explained in the rest of the text. Much of this chapter focuses on running simulation setups and exercises based on VPI software. Many of the design cases in Chapter 4, “WDM Network Design -1” and Chapter 5, “WDM Network Design -2,” are generically simulated in this chapter. The authors would like to thank Elizabeth P. Morgan (VPIphotonics) for coordinating this project. Special thanks to Arthur Lowery (for authoring the body of this chapter) and Peter Wildhagen (for creating the simulation demos), both from VPIphotonics.
