Optical Burst Switching (OBS) is an optical switching technology capable of supporting large demands for bandwidth in optical backbones with Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM). This paper presents an OBS simulation model for the discrete event simulator OMNeT++. The performance of this model is compared with the performance of the well-known INET simulation model for IP networks. Both models show similar performance results. The OBS model is faster but uses more dynamic memory.
