The rapid introduction of wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) technology to cope with the increased bandwidth requirements of transmission networks has intensified the need for recovery mechanisms at the optical layer. A first step towards survivable optical networking will be seen through the introduction of optical rings. This paper presents different types of optical rings (dedicated and shared protection WDM rings) and the planning issues associated with these WDM rings. In particular, we give mathematical models as well as solution methods for the ring loading and wavelength assignment problem. We compare the wavelength requirement of dedicated and shared protection rings under scenarios with different demand patterns. We also discuss the influence of the WDM equipment cost, and present a mathematical model for the optimization of hybrid networks with both dedicated and shared protection rings.
