This paper considers the estimation of blocking probabilities of circuit-switched WDM networks with no wavelength converters and with fixed routing. It presents an importance sampling simulation technique for determining whether or not such a network meets a specific grade of service requirement, in the sense of all routes having blocking below a given threshold. It is especially efficient for networks with high grades of service, which take a long time to simulate using conventional methods.
