In this work optical networks in mesh topology with OPS/OBS photonic switching are analysed and evaluated. Analytical and computer simulation methods are utilised for evaluation of average number of hops (ANH), packet loss fraction (PLF) and transmission delay (latency). These OPS/OBS networks show that under high input traffic, networks with nodes of higher interconnection grade are more efficient than just larger networks (increased number of nodes). For both optical packest and bursts results indicate high throughput, low ANH, low latency and very low packet loss fraction at the optical layer in our networks.
