Performance Analysis of Asynchronous Optical Burst Switching Networks
The ever increasing demand for higher bandwidth due to the growth of bandwidth intensive applications such as video-on-demand, video conferencing, on-line banking, on-line auction and other multimedia applications motivated the search for alternatives to traditional electronic networks. Optical Burst Switching (OBS) is one such paradigm developed to handle the future bandwidth demands for next-generation optical Internet. Quality-of-Service (QoS) provisioning is an essential feature in next-generation networks. This paper aims at providing loss-free transmission inside the OBS network for guaranteed bursts and also to utilize wavelength efficiently.
