Service differentiation scheme in OBS networks

Service differentiation scheme in OBS networks In order to achieve service differentiation, especially loss differentiation, in optical burst switching (OBS) networks, we propose a dynamic fiber delay line (FDL) partitioning algorithm, which divides FDLs into several groups over a feed-forward output buffering architecture. In the proposed scheme, a plurality of traffic classes and FDL groups can be considered, and each FDL group is assigned to traffic classes, so that the target loss probabilities of classes are guaranteed. Also, the optimal number of FDLs for each FDL group by the proposed algorithm is decided in Poisson traffic environments. The extensive simulation results validate the effectiveness of the proposed dynamic FDL partitioning algorithm for the loss differentiation in OBS networks.
