Optical burst switching (OBS) is a promising solution for building terabit optical routers and realizing IP over WDM. In this paper, we describe the basic concept of OBS and present a simulation model. The objective of our simulation is to estimate the throughput and the burst loss probability in such a network of OBS nodes. The traffic characteristics and reservation schemes are essential on burst loss probability. We give some comparison of these schemes by using our simulation model, as we can see, while low self-similarity traffic distribution and JET (just enough time) reservation schemes may have a potential positive effect on the overall blocking probability of the OBS network.
