Paper Abstract

The performance of an optical burst switching network is determined by the comprehensive effect of various parameters. This paper presents analysis results of an all-optical burst switching network which consists of edge nodes, which are responsible for traffic aggregation and distribution, and core nodes, which transmit payload data burst in the optical domain. Some essential parameters are compared on their effects on implementing switching operation, contention resolution and routing functions. We have examined the interrelationship of these parameters. Typical performance criteria are investigated in a sample OBS network.
