Abstract
Due to the recent outstanding advancement of optical networking technology, pervasive Grid computing will be a feasible option in the near future. As Grid infrastructure, optical networks must be able to handle different Grid traffic patterns with various traffic characteristics as well as different QoS requirements. With current optical switching technology, optical circuit switching is suitable for data-intensive Grid applications while optical burst switching is suitable to submit small Grid jobs. However, there would be high bandwidth short-lived traffic in some emerging Grid applications such as multimedia editing. This kind of traffic couldn't be well supported by both OCS and conventional OBS because of considerable path setup delay and bandwidth waste in OCS and inherent loss in OBS. Quasi-Circuit OBS (QCOBS) is proposed in this paper to address this challenge, providing one-way reserved, nearly lossless, instant provisioned wavelength service in OBS networks. Simulation results show that QCOBS achieves lossless transmission at low and moderate loads, and very low loss probability at high loads with proper guard time configuration.
