With the advancement of technology and telecommunication networks, there is an increasing need to develop tools to assist in decision-making, and to enable new research developments. The ElasticO++ simulation tool makes easier the development of new research in optical telecommunications networks. In this work, we implemented a graphical interface that facilitates and speeds up the simulation process in ElasticO++, allowing to modify its parameters intuitively, to run simulations for a large set of networks simultaneously, and to visualize the results. To demonstrate how the implemented interface improves the usability of ElasticO++, we present an experiment with the NSFNET network together with a set of 70 topologies generated by adding a single link in all possible ways in the NSFNET network.
