This paper addresses the problem of dimensioning buffers realized by means of fiber delay lines in optical routers able to switch packets that have variable length and are sent asynchronously on the optical links. The optical buffer is analyzed focusing on the different behavior of a delay buffer and an electronic memory. The role of the time unit of the fiber delay lines is discussed, showing that it is a crucial parameter to determine the queuing performance. The paper presents two… CONTINUE READING
