Please note that this page is under construction. We are documenting the 240-node cluster maya that will be available after Summer 2014. Currently, the 84-node cluster tara still operates independently, until it becomes part of maya at the end of Summer 2014. Please see the 2013 Resources Pages under the Resources tab for tara information.

This project aims to optimize, using techniques and high-performance computing architectures, the numerical simulation in WDM optical networks with complex physical and logical topology, that nowadays they're frequently use approximate analytical models to estimate the effects of the physical layer. We propose the construction of a simulator to evaluate the optical network infrastructure for data transport of high capacity, which reproduces the dynamic behavior of traffic demands, taking into account the effects of the physical layer by means of a numerical model incorporated for simulating signal propagation in optical fibers.
