In polymorphous optical burst-switched (POBS) networks, the burst control packets (BCPs) of conventional just-enough-time based signalling OBS networks are given extended properties which enable them not only to reserve fixed time-slots for asynchronous data bursts, but also to allocate TDM reservations for periodic streams of data, and even a complete wavelength for high-bandwidth demanding services. This allows POBS to provide a flexible, yet transparent, approach for supporting the… CONTINUE READING
