Paper Abstract

A statistical model of the aggregation operation in an optical packet based network interface is presented. The operation aggregates client-layer packets into optical slots, and includes a timeout parameter to limit the maximum delay. Aggregation serves the purpose of providing an efficient filling of the large optical slots with smaller packets from the client layer. The model will be utilized to derive an optimal choice of timeout parameter that will lead to an efficient utilization of the optical packets.
