The manner and exact timing of the evolution of the widely used DWDM infrastructure to a transparent optical network is judged on economic circumstances and network performance. In this context this article elaborates on a methodology developed within the Project 1ST NOBEL, for integrating cost functions and other design constraints into the planning of a DWDM network while considering this evolution perspective to a transparent optical network. This systematic approach builds upon the experience of static network design and is substantiated by specific examples in this article
