Survey of QoS Issues for TCP Connections in Optical Burst Switched Networks

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Optical Burst Switching (OBS) can cater the requirements of bandwidth intensive applications like Voice-over-IP, video conferencing, interactive video on demand. It is switching technique for the next generation optical networks. This paper deals with merits and the protocols used for the Optical Burst Switching. A brief survey of QoS open research issues for TCP/OBS connections is also discussed. Internet Protocol (IP) dominates network technology because of the growth of internet applications like Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), Video Conferencing; Interactive Online Entertainment, etc. The inception of Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) allows multiplexing hundreds of channels per fiber.
