We consider the problem of designing a network of optical cross-connects (OXCs) which provides end-to-end lightpath services to large numbers of client nodes, under the requirement that the network will survive any single-link failure. Our main objective is to quantify the additional resource requirements of implementing path protection schemes over a network with no survivability properties. To this end, we present heuristic routing and wavelength assignment algorithms for dedicated path protection and two variants of shared path protection, and integrate them into the physical and logical topology design framework we developed in an earlier study. We apply our heuristics to networks with up to 1000 client nodes, with a number of lightpaths that is an order of magnitude greater than the number of clients, and for a wide range of values for system parameters such as the number of wavelengths per fiber, the number of optical transceivers per client node, and the number of ports per OXC. Our results provide insight into the relative resource requirements of dedicated and shared path protection schemes. We also find that, using shared path protection schemes, it is possible to build cost-effective survivable networks that provide rich connectivity among client nodes with only a modest additional amount of resources over a network with no survivability properties.
