Abstract. Development of sophisticated photonic transmission systems enabled evolution of photonic data transport networks towards cost-efficient and energy-efficient platforms capable to carry enormous traffic. Given access to technologically advanced equipment, network operator faces a series of decision problems related to how to efficiently use this technology. In this paper, we propose a functional model of modern photonic network with wavelength division multiplexing (WDM). Proposed functional model is a basis for formulating corresponding flow design problem in terms of mathematical programming.
