During the development of a Network Management System (NMS), it is imperative to test the system with the actual Network Element (NE). However, this is not feasible, as the equipment may be unavailable during the development cycle or NE may have to be physically laid throughout the globe in order to support various networking and scheduling operations. This paper presents a novel idea of optical NE simulation which mimics the behavior of network traffic without a real NE. Simulation of only those functions that are ready for implementation are performed to enhance the performance by authorizing the establishment of a session.
