Paper Abstract

In this paper, we propose a novel optical packet switching mechanism incorporating void filling that makes some packets switch in optical domain, others in electronic domain. The optical packet switching is solved in time, space, wavelength and electronic domain. We also present numerical simulations under Poisson traffic and variable IP packet length condition. Simulation results have shown improvement in packet loss probability by using our switching mechanism.
