Survivability to faulty components and simplified management drive the practical deployment of ring-based WDM networks. In many applications, location constraints and user scalability require that multiple rings are interconnected to form a single large network. Survivability of connections spanning across multiple rings is then achieved by resorting to dual-interconnection, i.e., two (or more) nodes are available to crossconnect the inter-ring traffic between two neighboring rings. By providing one backup crossconnect-node to be used in case of failure of the primary crossconnect-node, network wide connectivity is thus guaranteed also in presence of any faulty node. This paper addresses the problem of optimally provisioning both bandwidth and crossconnect ports required to satisfy a set of traffic demands in a dual-interconnected WDM dual-ring network architecture. The problem is solved under two design scenarios. In the first scenario, priority is given to the minimization of the number of wavelengths. In the second scenario, priority is given to the balancing of traffic between the crossconnect-nodes. Two efficient approaches are proposed that provide a near-optimal solution in each considered scenario. The discussed performance comparison provides the network designer with a quantitative assessment of the trade-off between the two approaches.
