This work studies the influence the network interconnection has over restoration techniques. The way physical links are distributed to interconnect network nodes has a great impact on parameters such as path distances when failures occur and restoration is applied. The work focuses on single and dual physical link failures restorability on WDM transport networks. This failure scenarios are tested over several 3-connected topologies, and studied in graph theory and network planning terms. In connection with the graphs, the resulting hop path distances and lengths are evaluated. In relation to network planning, the trade-off network length vs. performance of the different topological options is studied. The results show how 3-connected graphs could provide a reasonable trade-off between costs, link failure rates, and restored path parameters.
