  • Residual Admission Capacity in Optical Burst Switching Networks and Its Application in Configuration of Loss Guaranteed Tunnels

    This paper studies how the capacity utilization can be improved by proper configuration of loss guaranteed tunnels in optical burst switching (OBS) networks. We show that the method of computing residual bandwidth in IP networks is not applicable to OBS networks due to the bufferless nature. We propose a more accurate metric, residual admission capacity (RAC), to measure the amount of link residual capacity. We apply the concept of RAC in loss budget partitioning and loss threshold selection. First, we develop an RAC based loss budget partitioning (RAC-LBP) algorithm. The RAC-LBP is efficient in capacity utilization and flexible with loss threshold settings. We then develop an RAC based loss threshold selection (RAC-LTS) algorithm. Using the loss thresholds determined by the RAC-LTS can improve the capacity utilization efficiency.

  • Traffic tree based burst scheduling in optical burst switching network

    Serializing bursts at the ingress node is an effective method to reduce burst loss in OBS networks. One of the key issues in the scheduling scheme is home channel assignment. In this letter, serialized burst traffic load (SBTL) is defined to evaluate the burst serializing degree according to the traffic tree model. A home channel assignment algorithm based on the optimization of total SBTL is proposed. Simulation is performed to verify the efficiency of the burst scheduling scheme for the proposed algorithm. The results show that the performance of the proposed algorithm is better than that obtained by greedy algorithm.

  • An accurate model for evaluating blocking probabilities in multi-class OBS systems

    This letter presents an analytical model that can be used to evaluate the blocking probability of each service class in a multi-class optical burst- switching network. The model allows, for the first time, the evaluation of blocking probabilities in optical burst switching (OBS) systems with arbitrary burst-length distributions and arbitrary offsets. This includes OBS systems in which the mean burst length of each class is different. Such systems do not follow the conservation law and cannot, therefore, be analyzed using previously published OBS models. For an OBS system with two classes, an offered load of 10/sup -3/, and a 1:5 ratio of high-priority to low-priority traffic, we show that our model accurately predicts the blocking probability for each class, whereas predictions from previously published models that assume conservation disagree with the simulation results by as much as 75%.

  • On Achieving the Optimal Performance of FDL Buffers Using Burst Assembly

    This letter proposes a new dynamic burst length adjustment mechanism to achieve optimal performance of fiber delay line (FDL) buffers in optical burst switching networks. Our results show that burst blocking probability at an optical node with a fixed length FDL buffer can be kept at minimum under changing traffic conditions using the proposed mechanism.

  • A Virtual One-Way Signaling Protocol With Aggressive Resource Reservation for Improving Burst Transmission Delay

    In this paper, we propose a new scheme for the on demand use of capacity in OBS networks, combining a two-way reservation protocol and an assembly scheme process that incorporates an aggressive and forward resource reservation mechanism. The key idea is to tune the assembly timer to be equal to the time associated with the establishment of the end-to-end connection (round-trip- time) and, thus, synchronize the resource reservation with the assembly process. In this way, upon the arrival of the first packet in the queue, reservation of resources may start simultaneously based on an aggressive prediction of the burst length.

  • Performance Evaluation of Slotted Optical Burst Switching Systems With Quality of Service Differentiation

    Slotted optical burst switching (SOBS) has recently caught the attention of the optical networking community due to performance gains achievable with synchronous infrastructures. In this paper, we study the loss probabilities in a slotted optical burst switching node fed with Poisson burst traffic where the fixed burst size is an integer multiple of the slot length. We develop a discrete-time Markov chain (DTMC) based framework to obtain the loss probabilities in systems with and without quality of service (QoS) differentiation. In particular, we focus on analytical modeling of priority scheduling and offset-based QoS differentiation mechanisms for SOBS networks. The latter problem suffers from the curse of dimensionality which we address by a discrete phase type distribution approximation for the discrete Poisson distribution leading to an accurate approximation for the loss probabilities. A hybrid QoS mechanism which jointly utilizes offset-based differentiation together with priority scheduling is also analyzed.

  • Performance evaluation of hybrid circuit/burst switching nodes

    A comparison between an optical network node working under the circuit switching or the burst switching paradigms is made. Different statistical distributions for the generated traffic are analyzed and, by means of simulations, results on the node capacity are obtained. Finally, the performance of an optical node supporting simultaneously optical channels and optical bursts is evaluated.

  • QoS Provisioning for Wireless Mesh and Optical Burst Switching Convergence

    Wireless Mesh Networks (WMN) have attracted increasing attention from the research community as a high-performance and low-cost solution to last-mile broadband Internet access. In the other side, Optical Burst Switching (OBS) is a promising access technology that uses optical fiber with burst switching paradigm. In this paper, we propose a novel Metropolitan Area Network (MAN) architecture called Optical Burst Wireless Mesh Architecture (OBWMA) which integrates WMN at the user access side and OBS at the core of the MAN. OBWMA aims to combine advantages of both WMNs and OBS networks, such as large coverage at low cost and bandwidth availability. We develop an analytical model to compute the end-to-end delay in OBWMA in order to support flow requests with delay constraints. Furthermore, we propose a novel QoS provisioning scheme for the WMN part (WQP), and a novel bandwidth provisioning scheme for the OBS part (WPBP). Simulation results using ns-2 demonstrate the feasibility of OBWMA, the accuracy of our analytical model and the effectiveness of WQP and WPBP to provide QoS provisioning for the converged network.

  • Time sliced optical burst switching

    Time Sliced Optical Burst Switching is a proposed variant of optical burst switching, in which switching is done in the time domain, rather than the wavelength domain. This eliminates the need for wavelength converters, the largest single cost component of systems that switch in the wavelength domain. We examine some of the key design issues for routers that implement time sliced optical packet switching. In particular, we focus on the design of the Optical Time Slot Interchangers (OTSIs) needed to effect the required time domain switching. We introduce a novel nonblocking OTSI design and also show how blocking OTSIs can be used to implement the required switching operations. We study the performance of systems using blocking OTSIs and demonstrate that near ideal statistical multiplexing performance can be achieved using even quite inexpensive, blocking OTSI designs. These results suggest that optical technology may one day be able to provide a cost-effective alternative to electronics in packet switching systems.
