In this paper, we investigate the capital and operational expenditures for two next generation optical access (NGOA) networks based on wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) technology in dense urban areas. It is shown that with a proper fiber layout design, minor extra investment for protection of NGOA networks can make a significant saving on failure related operational cost.
