Abstract

This paper provides a framework for analysis and performance evaluation of Optical Burst Switching (OBS) networks. In particular, a new reduced load fixed point approximation model to evaluate blocking probabilities in OBS networks is introduced. The model is versatile enough to cover known OBS reservation policies such as Just-Enough-Time (JET), Just-In-Time (JIT), Burst Segmentation and Route-dependent Priorities. The accuracy of the model is confirmed by simulation and the various policies are compared.
