This paper provides an architectural study of optical ring trunk-transmission networks using either Time Division Multiplexing (TDM) or Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM). A timeslot arrangement algorithm for distributed controlled TDM rings is proposed that minimizes the number of slots (wavelengths) required in bi-directional ring networks. This algorithm is applied in a straightforward manner to wavelength arrangement in WDM ring networks. The technique, characterized by timeslot (or wavelength) conversion, realizes common add/drop procedures in all Add/Drop Multiplexers (ADMs) when they are connected logically in a mesh topology. A self-healing algorithm is also proposed for network restoration. It offers good performance in terms of protection line-capacity, restoration delay, and survivability against multiple failures.
