In this work, we propose the use of an Ant Colony Optimization (ACO) algorithm to mitigate packet loss in an optical packet switching network that carries self-similar traffic, which is known to have a great impact in the buffer performance in terms of loss probability as exemplified in this work. By adaptively routing the packets and balancing the network load, we demonstrate by some simulations the effectiveness of this approach when compared with a shortest-path routing scheme, achieving a performance that is comparable to the Poisson traffic scenario in some cases. The proposed algorithm can be used as a viable alternative to traffic shaping techniques.
