This paper presents an investment strategy to reduce the risk associated with failures in wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) optical networks. The investment strategy determines how to allocate a fixed budget for implementing survivability techniques in different parts of the network such that the expected loss of traffic (ELT) is minimized. Two survivability schemes are considered in this paper: dedicated link protection and dedicated path protection. Two analytical techniques for evaluating network unavailability and ELT are presented in this paper: a fault tree analysis and an event tree. Based on the event tree approach, we propose a novel mixed integer linear programming (MILP) formulation for the investment strategy problem. Numerical results illustrating the investment strategy for both link and path protection are presented and discussed.
