Two general-purpose decomposition methods to calculate the blocking probabilities of connection-oriented networks are presented. The methods are based on either the call status or the link status of the networks, and can significantly reduce the required computational times. A heuristic is presented to simplify the application of the proposed decomposition methods on networks with irregular topologies. Numerical examples are given to demonstrate the applications of the proposed methods.
