XCP-based transmission control mechanism for optical packet switched networks with very small optical RAM

XCP-based transmission control mechanism for optical packet switched networks with very small... According to a famous rule-of-thumb, buffer size of each output link of a router should be set to bandwidth-delay product of the network, in order to achieve high utilization with TCP flows. However, ultra high speed of optical networks makes it very hard to satisfy this rule-of-thumb, especially with limited choices of buffering in the optical domain, because optical RAM is under research and it is not expected to have a large capacity, soon. In this article, we evaluate the performance of our explicit congestion control protocol-based architecture designed for very small Optical RAM-buffered optical packet switched wavelength division multiplexing networks with pacing at edge nodes in order to decrease the required buffer size at core nodes. By using a mesh topology and applying TCP traffic, we evaluate the optical buffer size requirements of this architecture and compare with a common proposal in the literature. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Photonic Network Communications Springer Journals
