This paper describes an enhanced network-design process that augments the usual traffic flow and cost analyses with previously ignored topological stability considerations. Topological stability considerations are incorporated into an improved network-design process through a set of previously defined connectivity (survivability) measures. The network designs that result from this new process are survivable and meet processing and performance requirements.
