Sonet Network Design Problems

  title={Sonet Network Design Problems},
  author={Marie Pelleau and Pascal Van Hentenryck and Charlotte Truchet},
This paper presents a new method and a constraint-based objective function to solve two problems related to the design of optical telecommunication networks, namely the Synchronous Optical Network Ring Assignment Problem (SRAP) and the Intra-ring Synchronous Optical Network Design Problem (IDP). These network topology problems can be represented as a graph partitioning with capacity constraints as shown in previous works. We present here a new objective function and a new local search algorithm… CONTINUE READING
