Paper Abstract

Optical Burst Switching (OBS) is a promising solution for realizing IP-over-WDM. However, OBS has its disadvantages involving in high burst lost ratio and low channel utilization. In this paper, a new Hybrid Optical Burst Switching (H-OBS) is proposed, and the H-OBS with a ring is investigated with numerical simulation. Simulation results indicate that the packet lost ratio in H-OBS is less than that in OBS, and its performance depends on some parameters such as traffic volume, the packet proportion (PP), the electronic buffer size and the processing speed in edge node and core node.
