Abstract
This paper presents and discuses three main points on the design and planning of transport networks. The first one is the pure backbone design mainly based on WDM technology. Several methods are discussed and some comparative results are given based on real-test cases. The second point is related to the protection issues in a multi-layer transport network. We will examine the different constraints, which have to be taken into account and we will discuss the main parameter as the hold-off time we can used to face interaction between SDH/SONET and WDM layers. The final point is introducing the management of the Optical Channel layer with the description of a possible attracting and flexible framing structure.
