In this paper we propose a simple model that analyzes the cost saving achieved by optical IP switching (OIS), a novel optical architecture, compared to a conventional IP-over-WDM network, where the IP router connects directly to the WDM module. The analysis we propose shows that OIS can bring substantial cost savings in the initial investment of network operators.
