Optical buffers for variable length packets

F. Callegati
2000 IEEE Communications Letters  
This letter addresses the problem of dimensioning fiber delay lines for optical buffers in a network scenario where packets are asynchronous and of variable length. The focus is placed on providing a simple analytical model to dimension the basic time unit of the fiber delay line, as the crucial parameter that determines the queueing performance. Index Terms-High speed networks, optical buffers, optical packet switching.
