Approximate waiting time analysis of burst queue at an edge in optical burst-switched networks

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


In this paper, we analyze the burst queue with burst assembler at an edge in optical burst-switched networks. It is significant from the fact that most of processing and buffering are concentrated at the edge in OBS networks. Modelling the burst queue in terms of IP packets, we aim to obtain the expected number of packets in burst queue the size of which influences the cost of constructing OBS networks. The analytical model is verified through simulation.
