Paper Abstract

This work aims to show the possibility of WDM optical network planning using the virtual topology. For this analysis, heuristics methods were applied to take current and future traffic into account to plan a network under limited link capacity. The results suggest that it is feasible to preserve enough open capacity to avoid blocking of future traffic, without network disruption, allocating appropriate link capacities for a given planning period.
