Modularity and economy-of-scale effects in the optimal design of mesh-restorable networks

Abstract

Most, if not all, theoretical work on the capacity design of mesh-restorable networks has been done in an integer, but non-modular, fashion. Although OC-n modules can only approximate the exact design capacities, this has been acceptable in practice where networks are rapidly growing and demand forecasts have uncertainty in any case, or in research studies… (More)
