CORNet: A Scalable and Bandwidth-Efficient Optical Burst Switching Ring Architecture for Metro Area Networks
The rapid evolution of networks has been driven by new advances in enabling technologies and the explosive growth of Internet traffic. Optical Burst Switching (OBS) is not only cost-effective, but also provides high throughput, high bandwidth utilization, and low transmission latency. These benefits make OBS a viable solution for next-generation Metro Area Networks (MANs) in which the traffic models will be changed more dramatically than today’s networks. Based on Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) technology, this study presents a loss-free optical burst switching metro ring architecture, designated the Collision-free Optic-burst Ring Network (CORNet). The proposed architecture ensures a collision-free transmission of data bursts, while retaining the advantage of the statistical multiplexing provided by conventional OBS networks. The simulation results confirm the effectiveness of the proposed CORNet architecture.
