In this study we propose a new heuristic approach called the hybrid survivable configuration (HSC) to provide differentiated service for optical wavelength-division-multiplexing (WDM) networks subject to double-link failures. Compared with previous approaches, HSC not only can obtain higher survivability but also can save significant resources. The simulation results are shown to be promising.
