We propose a rational approximation (RA)-based algorithm to perform the blocking analysis of circuit-switched all-optical networks. Our algorithm can be applied to large networks with various topologies and routing and wavelength assignment algorithms. It can be applied to optical networks with either full, sparse, or no wavelength conversion. We also propose fixed-path wavelength assignment algorithms for networks with balanced and unbalanced traffic.
