This paper proposes a new analytical technique for the performance analysis of all optical networks which use the first-fit algorithm for wavelength assignment. We analyze the wavelength usage on the links to calculate the blocking probability of a source destination pair, taking into account wavelength correlation and load correlation between links. Our model is accurate even in a system with large number of wavelengths.
