Abstract

Optical Bursts Switching (OBS) is a relatively new optical switching paradigm. In this paper, I give an
introduction to optical burst switching (OBS) and compare it with other existing optical switching paradigms like circuit
and packet switching. Contention and burst loss in OBS networks are major concerns. In this paper I have also discussed
about OBS network architecture and enabling technologies of OBS. To resolve contentions, an interesting alternative to
discarding the entire data burst is to partially drop the burst. Partial burst dropping is based on burst segmentation
concept that its implementation is constrained by some technical challenges, besides the complexity added to the
algorithms and protocols on both edge and core nodes. In this paper, the burst segmentation concept is investigated, and
an implementation scheme CPQ is proposed and evaluated.
