Paper Abstract

OBS is more flexible and has higher bandwidth utilization than OCS; on the other hand, it is more feasible than OPS. OBS is the ideal switching technology at present. In this paper, we study OBS ring network with tunable transceivers. To reduce the high cost per node of an OBS ring network, a possible solution is to use tunable transceivers at the nodes. Efficient tuning strategies of these transceivers are required to maximize the ring bandwidth capacity and mitigate the effect of tuning latency. We propose a transmitter tuning strategy and a receiver tuning strategy and simulate the proposed tuning strategies and present the result and analyze their performances in OBS ring network.
