Exact emulation of a priority queue with a switch and delay lines

All-optical packet switched networking is hampered by the problem of realizing viable queues for optical packets. Packets can be buffered in delay lines, but delay lines do not functionally emulate queues from an input-output point of view. In this paper we consider the problem of exact emulation of a priority queue of size K using a switching system comprised of a switch of size (M +1)× (M +1), which has one distinguished input for external arrivals, one distinguished output for external… CONTINUE READING
