Abstract
High power consumption due to O/E/O processing in many conventional electronic datacenter networks can be greatly decreased by a suitable use of all-optical switching technologies. OBS is specially suited to perform this task given its bursty-data traffic friendly mode of operation. In this paper, we evaluate through analysis and simulation the performance of both OBS and electronic networks when used to carry TCP flows inside a 6D-hypercube, a highly symmetrical topology representative of datacenter networks.
