## Fast Dimensioning of Packet-Switched All-Optical Networks

This paper addresses the basic concepts of the packet switching in the optical domain and describes an analytical approach to evaluate the end-to-end performance of networks employing slotted (fixed length) optical packets. Thus, for a given topology and traffic matrix, the end-to-end cell loss ratio is analytically computed assuming an uncorrelated traffic. A network dimensioning method relying on this approach is also presented.
