The physical layer of high-density multi-wavelength optical networks (DWDM) contains a number of elements of different electrical sizes, that need to be modeled differently by introducing different approximations for their characterization and for representing intra-module electromagnetic and quantum mechanical interactions. Given the complex network and signal environments the validation of models for DWDM networks is rather difficult task.
