New Burst Assembly and Scheduling Technique for Optical Burst Switching Networks
The optical burst switching is a new switching technology that efficiently utilizes the bandwidth in the optical layer. The key areas to be concentrated in Optical Burst Switching (OBS) networks are the burst assembly and burst scheduling i.e., assignment of wavelengths to the incoming bursts. This paper presents a New Burst Assembly and Scheduling (NBAS) technique in a simultaneous multipath transmission for burst loss recovery in OBS networks. A Redundant Burst Segmentation (RBS) is used for the burst assembly. In the authors proposed algorithm, the proper policy is selected based on the priority of each burst, the length of each burst and the length of the redundant data.
