Rapid growth in network traffic demands higher bandwidth networks with high speed components. To evaluate the extent to which traffic demands are being met, we require tools to analyze the networks and their components so that questions such as “how much”, “how many” and “how long” can be adequately answered before these components can be deployed. One such tool is the analysis of queueing systems using a state diagram approach. State diagrams are very useful for understanding the working and the analysis of a wide range of systems. However, their complexity has been a major factor in their limited use for analyzing large systems. This talk focuses on some techniques that have been developed to depict and solve complex multi-dimensional state diagrams in a standard and comprehensible manner, and how these could be utilized to measure performance of optical networks.
