Comparison of Mathematical Programming Approaches to Optical Ring Network DesignG.D. Morley, W.D. Grover
The 3rd Canadian Conference on Broadband Research (CCBR'99), Ottawa, Canada, pp. 173-184, November 7-9, 1999
We discuss the problem of designing minimum-cost transport networks using optical shared-protection rings. We begin with an overview of optical rings and a description of the multi-ring network design problem along with a survey of relevant prior work. We then review three mathematical programming formulations for the multi-ring network design problem which were presented without results in a prior paper . We now assess the performance of these formulations with quantitative results on four test networks.
