Development of the Simulation Tool “OPTSIM”
One of the most relevant activities of the OPTCOM group in the past was the development of the software simulator called “OPTSIM”. It is a simulation tools specifically devoted to the system-level simulation of optical communication systems, and in particular to long-haul, high speed fiber optic transmission systems. Its numerical core was developed by the OPTCOM group, than it was engineered and commercialized by external companies. It has become a commercial product starting from 2000.
