To make use of the entire transmission band which optical networks based on WDM (Wavelength Division Multiplexing) technology permit, different technologies have been and are being developed such as: broadcast-and-select, routing, Optical Packet Switching and Optical Burst Switching. Studies on networks based on optical packets began at the end of the 1990s. It involves a new and promising technology which seems likely to revolutionize optical systems even further. In the belief that the development of new devices and systems based on these innovations will create a demand for computational tools for these networks, as happened with WDM, IgnisCom is proposing the development of a commercial tool for the design and planning of optical packet networks. The objective is to offer an unprecedented product, which will be launched on the market before others that include this technology. Besides the innovative technology in the modeling and analysis of optical packet networks, the proposed tool will also have some innovations in its architecture, amongst which we can highlight: Simulation Integrated with Planning, Dynamic Project Manager, Optimization of Parameters Link and Expandable and Modular Library of Models.
