In this letter we devise and validate by simulation an analytical model to study the performance of TDM/WDM networks using a three-stage switching architecture as an abstract model. We consider the transparency property as a constraint: a new incoming call can be accepted only without modifying the routing of previously accepted calls. We concentrate on the analysis of the call blocking probability by varying the traffic pattern and the configuration of the switching architecture. We show that a very good agreement is obtained between simulation and analytical results.
