With ever-increasing demands for bandwidth optical packet/burst switching is used to utilise more of the available capacity of optical networks. In current prototypes of optical switches time and wavelength multiplexing are combined to resolve packet contentions by means of Fiber Delay Lines and wavelength converters in the switching elements.

With ever-increasing demand for bandwidth, both optical packet switching and optical burst switching are proposed as alternatives to increase the capacity of optical networks in the future. In these packet-based switching techniques, Fiber Delay Lines are used to avoid contention between packets on a single wavelength. The involved scheduling algorithms(More)
