The authors present an algorithm for routing fiber around a ring in a network, when the network nodes, links, connectivity, and which offices are to be used on that ring together are known. The algorithm aids automated survivable network planning. The algorithm was programmed in C, and run on a SPARC-station. Under certain conditions, the problem degenerates to the traveling salesman problem, and the ring routing algorithm degenerates to the nearest neighbor method of solving that problem
