Optical burst switching (OBS) is a promising technique for next-generation optical switching networks. In traditional OBS, an entire burst is discarded when all output wavelengths are engaged at the arrival instant of the burst. A critical design issue in OBS is how to reduce burst dropping probability as a result of slow scheduling reservation or resources contention. This paper proposes a hardware-based slotted wavelength assignment pipeline (SWAP) scheduler which integrates the merits of… CONTINUE READING
