A novel distributed scheduling approach powered by central databases in optical burst networks

A novel distributed scheduling approach powered by central databases in optical burst networks In terms of the growth rate, network capacity is slower than network traffic. To solve the mismatch between them, utilization of available capacity can be maximized to provide “best-fit” service for emerging applications (e.g., eBanking, Peer-to-Peer (P2P) file exchanges, etc.). To satisfy such a requirement, we propose a three-dimensional label scheduling algorithm (TD-LSA), which is a distributed scheduling approach powered by central databases. In the proposal, all connections are provisioned in three dimensions (i.e., space, time and wavelength) in a distributed way and uniquely identified by three-dimensional labels. And in this way a three-dimensional connection is more robust than a single-dimensional connection because the three-dimensional approach can avoid potential scheduling conflicts as much as possible by using central databases in a network. Thus, the central databases can reduce bandwidth consumption and offer “best-fit” service for three-dimensional connections. Furthermore, in order to further reduce bandwidth consumption and to match with a priority of traffic, K-least hop first path (K-LHPF) and a rescheduling mechanism are applied to our proposal. Simulation experiments demonstrate that our proposal achieves the expected performance gain against existing alternates. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Photonic Network Communications Springer Journals
