Paper Abstract

We study the access protocol of a WDM metro ring with Optical Burst Switching (OBS) in this paper. The multiple tokens are adopted to resolve the receiver collisions. We extend the information carried by the tokens to enable more exact burst transmission. Numerical results show that our protocol can not only increase the network throughput but also decrease the packet delay.
