Techniques for optical packet switching and optical burst switching

  author={Lisong Xu and Harry G. Perros and George N. Rouskas},
Wavelength-division multiplexing appears to be the solution of choice for providing a faster networking infrastructure that can meet the explosive growth of the Internet. Several different technologies have been developed so far for the transfer of data over WDM. In this article we survey two new technologies which are still in the experimental stage — optical packet switching and optical burst switching — and comment on their suitability for transporting IP traffic.
