ABSTRACT This paper proposes an architecture for the establishment of routes with absolute QoS constraints for optical burst switched grid networks. This model uses traffic engineering provided by GMPLS to build LSPs that matches the required performance in response to a request made by the user/application of the grid. Results show that the proposal is capable of enforcing QoS by reducing the loss experienced by burst classes and allowing a better utilization of the computing resources.

    ABSTRACT: Grids offer a uniform interface to a distributed collection of heterogeneous computational, storage and network resources. Most current operational grids are dedicated to a limited set of computationally and/or data intensive scientific problems. The de facto modus operandi is one where users submit job requests to a grid portal, acting as an interface to the grid's management system, which in turn negotiates with 'dumb' resources (computing and storage elements, network links) and arranges for the jobs to be executed. In this paper, we present a new grid architecture featuring generic application support, direct user access (grid-to-the-home) and decentralized scheduling intelligence in the network. We show how optical burst switching (OBS) enables these features while offering the necessary network flexibility demanded by future grid applications.

    ABSTRACT: Driven by increasingly complex problems and propelled by increasingly powerful technology, today's science is as much based on computation, data analysis, and collaboration as on the efforts of individual experimentalists and theorists. But even as computer power, data storage, and communication continue to improve exponentially, computational resources are failing to keep up with what scientists demand of them.

    ABSTRACT: In this tutorial, we give an introduction to optical burst switching and compare it with other existing optical switching paradigms. Basic burst assembly algorithms and their effect on assembled burst traffic characteristics are described first. Then a brief review of the early work on burst transmission is provided, followed by a description of a prevailing protocol for OBS networks called just-enough-time (JET). Algorithms used as an OBS core node for burst scheduling as well as contention resolution strategies are presented next. Trade-offs between their performance and implementation complexities are discussed. Recent work on QoS support, IP/WDM multicast, TCP performance in OBS networks, and labeled OBS is also described, and several open issues are mentioned.
