In Optical Burst Switching (OBS), packets travel through the network core as part of longer-size optical bursts, which do not suffer electronic conversion until they reach an eggress point. Typically, such optical bursts comprise tens or hundreds of packets, which are assembled/deassembled at border nodes. During the burst-formation process, each arriving… CONTINUE READING
