We describe methods to design cost-eftective survivable telecommunications networks which employ fiber optic transmission links. One of these methods utilizes optical switching devices to implement route diversity during cable cuts. These methods have been incorporated into a software tool consisting of three modules: a topology generator, a circuit to DS3 bundler, and a multiplex layout system. This tool is compact enough to run on a personal computer, and we describe each of these three… CONTINUE READING
