Good resource allocation strategy is able to alleviate the resource contention. Deflection routing is one of contention resolution optical burst switching networks of good connectivity. But the offset time maybe not enough for reserve resource if deflection routing adopted. Too much deflection adopted will deteriorate the network performance. Another issue is how to determine if a contending burst will be deflected or discarded. In this paper, little Fiber Delay Lines (FDL) is used to assure the offset time will be compensated in time, and an optimum scheme is proposed from three aspects as if the network situation permits deflection, if contending burst is worthy to be hold continuously and the impaction of alternative route on deflection. Numerical results show that our optimized deflection scheme can achieve not only preferred deflection, but also to keep wavelength link from overloading. It balances the network load and stabilizes the network performance some degree.
