Nowadays, fiber optic networks that make transmission possible in high capacities become widespread. There is a partial decrease in network problems with the capabilities provided by these networks such as telephone, wide area network, Internet, video conference on a single fiber line. Also in optical networks, optical burst switching that is a new technology stands out by its some partial benefits. Optical Burst Switching (OBS) is a promising solution for all optical networks. In this paper, a program is developed which simulates signaling channel of an OBS switch, for signaling messages that uses signaling protocols while going from source node to destination node through intermediate OBS switches.
