Abstract

The rapid evolution of networks has been driven by new advances in enabling technologies and the explosive growth of Internet traffic. Optical Burst Switching (OBS) is not only cost-effective, but also provides high throughput, high bandwidth utilization, and low transmission latency. These benefits make OBS a viable solution for next-generation Metro Area Networks (MANs) in which the traffic models will be changed more dramatically than today's networks. Based on Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) technology, this study presents a loss-free optical burst switching metro ring architecture, designated the Collision-free Optic-burst Ring Network (CORNet). The proposed architecture ensures a collision-free transmission of data bursts, while retaining the advantage of the statistical multiplexing provided by conventional OBS networks. The simulation results confirm the effectiveness of the proposed CORNet architecture.
