Several different switching paradigms have been devised to transfer data over Wavelength-Division Multiplexing (WDM), such as Optical Circuit Switching (OCS) a wavelength-routed network, Optical Packet Switching (OPS), and Optical Burst Switching (OBS). Given that any optical switching strategy is mainly shaped by the advances in the optical technology, the optical communications systems must provide for the highest possible data rate. This paper introduces, as a variant of OBS, a new optical… CONTINUE READING
