On the Benefits of Traffic Segregation in WDM Networks

Abstract

This paper investigates whether performance of WDM optical switching may be improved by traffic shaping. Heavy-tailed Pareto traffic transmission split into different wavelengths, according to the holding time, is here proposed as a means of traffic shaping aimed at the minimization of mean delay, jitter, or blocking-time probability in optical burst… (More)
