In this paper we study the Optical Burst Switching (OBS) paradigm for the support of the TCP flows in an All Optical Network (AON). We analyze the TCP send rate, i.e. the amount of data sent per time unit, taking into account of: i) the burst assembly mechanism, called burstification process; ii) the burst loss events inside the OBS network. The goals of(More)
—In this paper, we propose an architecture for a buffer-less packet optical switch employing the wavelength dimension for contention resolution. The optical packet switch is equipped with tunable wavelength converters shared among the input lines. An analytical model is proposed in order to determine the number of converters needed to satisfy prefixed(More)
— Coupling MPLS Traffic Engineering on top of a wavelength-routed WDM layer offers great flexibility to operators to allocate traffic demands in their networks. In this paper we consider the problem of off-line joint configuration at both packet and optical layers. We consider time-variant offered traffic, and assume that the operator has knowledge of the(More)
