For the practical deployment of optical packet switching (OPS) system, realizing all-optical buffering is a critical issue. In this paper, we present a hybrid labelling scheme based on optical code-division multiplexing (OCDM) over generalized multi-protocol label switching (GMPLS) network. The virtual optical memory is implemented by assigning queuing packets with different coded-WDM labels. The proposed hybrid labels combine the advantages of wavelength-division multiplexing (WDM) with spectral-amplitude-coding (SAC) OCDM. Due to the cyclic-shift property of arrayed-waveguide grating (AWG) and maximal-length sequence (M-sequence) codes, blocks of label generating and processing in node organization can be built in low complexity. Furthermore, utilizing hybrid coding technique in the buffering node increases the efficiency of label generating and processing. Derivation of the probability of packet missing is done to quantify the buffering performance of virtual optical memory. Simulation results show that the hybrid-coded labels, as compared to the conventional OCDM labels, are able to buffer the data packets with a relatively low probability of packet missing under similar label length.
