This paper is to implement the architecture of the optical burst switching network in a discrete event simulation in order to conduct future studies in the behavior and the loss resolution in such networks by determining the burst-loss probability depending on the increase of the number of implemented data channels. The need for a bandwidth and the explosion of IP traffic are general factors driving research towards the development of new network architectures and techniques for an effective switching. The adoption of all-optical switching networks is to meet this need.
