English abstract:
We introduce the Three-Layer Hierarchical Ring Network
Design Problem, which arises especially in the design of large telecommunication
networks. The aim is to connect nodes that are assigned to
three different layers using rings of bounded length. We present tailored
Variable Neighborhood Search (VNS) and GRASP approaches to solve
large instances of this problem heuristically, and discuss computational
results indicating the VNS´ superiority.
