Intermediate-node-initiation (INI): A generalized signaling framework for optical burst-switched networks
In this paper, we discuss different signaling techniques for optical burst-switched networks. We develop a generalized signaling framework for optical burst-switched networks, which provides guidelines about the performance of each signaling technique based on the different parameters in the framework. The two commonly used signaling techniques in optical burst switching are two-way based tell-and-wait (TAW) and one-way based just-enough-time (JET). TAW suffers from high end-to-end packet delay, while JET suffers from high packet loss. There is no signaling technique that offers flexibility in terms of both loss and delay. We propose a hybrid signaling technique called intermediate-node-initiated (INI) signaling for optical burst-switched networks. INI can provide different levels of loss and delay characteristics based on end-user application requirements. The granularity of INI ranges between the one-way based and the two-way based signaling techniques. In INI reservation of channe...
