We address the logical topology design problem (LTD) in WDM transport networks under static traffic assumptions. We start with one of the standard MILP formulations of the LTD problem that aims at optimizing the network congestion. We propose an improvement to this model that additionally optimizes the average hop count. We then derive a new MILP model that compels the traffic to be atomically routed. This last model enables fair comparisons of solutions obtained with MILP formulations and with metaheuristic algorithms. The latter allow us to deal with large size networks whereas the former are limited by their computational complexity. In this paper Tabu Search is used to tackle the LTD problem. We compare and discuss the logical topologies computed by the various methods described in the paper.
