Enhanced Mathematical Model for Both Throughput and Blocking Probability of Optical Burst Switched Networks

Free registration required

Executive Summary

An enhanced mathematical model is introduced to study and evaluate the performance of a core node in an optical burst switched network. A detailed state diagram is outlined to illustrate the problem, and then a mathematical model based on the equilibrium point analysis technique is presented. Two performance measures, namely, the steady-state system throughput and the average blocking probability, are derived from the model, which is built in the absence of wavelength conversion capability. The authors' proposed model is aided by a simulation work that studies the performance of an OBS core node under the assumption of Poisson traffic arrivals (the exact case) and calculates the steady-state system throughput.
