Packet losses can significantly degrade the quality of service (QoS) provided by networks. In this paper, asynchronous bufferless optical packet switched networks with multiple service classes and full wavelength conversion are considered. In case of a large number of wavelengths per fibre, packet losses become rare and thus intractable by means of conventional performance methodologies. We present a novel fast simulation technique for efficiently estimating the loss rates in this setting. Our… CONTINUE READING
