Internet services and applications require high reliability and different bandwidth that need to be supported over the high capacity wavelength channels. We will present a short overview of issues in design of wavelength division multiplexing, efficient protection, and access and grooming mechanisms to make the network transparent, scalable, reliable, and simple.
