Paper Abstract

This paper presents an approximate analysis of delay performance of a WD/SD optical packet/burst switch equipped with infinite optical buffers. By using M/G/1 model, we give the theoretical expression of delay performance of the switch fabric with/without assignment of priority class to service under fixed/variable packet length. Meanwhile, the results of numerical analysis are presented, too. According to these analyses, we give the following main conclusions: in the switch fabric with variable packet/burst length and no assignment of priority class to service, the mean packet/burst delay appears much smaller than that with fixed packet length; and in the switch fabric with assignment of three priority classes to service, the delay of two kinds of services with lower priority classes appears to bigger than that of service with no assignment of priority class.
