The paper demonstrates the concept of optical networks with nodes Implemented by the architecture on demand (AoD) and proposes a procedure for finding out possible benefits of AoD application, related to node and network availability. AoD node structure enables efficient failure management by creating a set of redundant components, which can be used for self-healing of optical nodes after failure. Availability evaluation procedure is based on Monte Carlo simulation of times to failure/repair of network components. A case study network with AoD nodes is compared to the network with hard-wired nodes in regard to availability performance, and results are presented.
