Optical network design problems fall in the broad category of network optimization problems. We give a short introduction on network optimization and general algorithmic techniques that can be used to solve complex and difficult network design problems. We apply these techniques to address the static Routing and Wavelength Assignment problem that is related to planning phase of a WDM optical network. We present simulation result to evaluate the performance of the proposed algorithmic solution.
