Paper Abstract

A high-speed optical packet switching node using the WDM all optical switch structure is studied in this paper. Tele-traffic performance of an all-optical IP packet router is simulated under the self-similar (bursty) traffic condition. Four different control algorithms are investigated for the performance and complexity. A simple round-robin algorithm cannot attain an acceptable performance. Finding minimum buffer occupancy and sorting the packets by length are methods used to improve the IP router performance.
