We provide here a new loss model for an optical hybrid switch that can function as an optical burst switch and/or optical circuit switch. Our model is general as it considers an implementation whereby some of the circuits have preemptive priority over bursts and others are allowed to queue their reservations. We first present an analysis based on a 3-dimension state-space Markov chain that provides exact results for the blocking probabilities of bursts and circuits, the proportion of circuits… CONTINUE READING
