Paper Abstract

In this paper, we propose the Offset Time Decision (OTD) algorithm for supporting the QoS in optical networks based on Optical Burst Switching (OBS), which is the new switching paradigm, and evaluate the performance of the OTD algorithm. The proposed algorithm can decide a reasonable offset time to guarantee the Burst Loss Rate (BLR) of high priority traffic by considering traffic load of network and the number of wavelengths. In order to design this effective OTD algorithm, firstly we illustrate the new burst loss formula, which includes the effect of offset time of high priority class. As the decision of offset time corresponding to the requested BLR, however, should use the reversed formula of new one, we are not able to use it without any changes. Thus, we define the Heuristic Loss Formula (HLF) that is based on the new burst loss formula and the proportional equation considering its characteristics. Finally we show the OTD algorithm to decide the reasonable offset time by using HLF. The simulation result shows that the requested BLR of high priority traffic is guaranteed under various traffic load.
