Shalini V. Wankhade, Swarupa B. Kambale . An Evolutionary Approach for LAUC Scheduler in Optical Burst Switching Networks. International Journal of Applied Information Systems. 2, 8 ( June 2012), 1-4. DOI=10.5120/ijais12-450383
Optical Burst Switching (OBS) has been proposed as a promising switching technology for the next generation of optical transport network. OBS is a technology positioned between Optical Circuit Switching (OCS) and Optical Packet Switching (OPS) that does not require optical buffering, and it is more efficient than circuit switching when the sustained traffic volume does not consume a full wavelength. OBS uses various scheduling algorithms like LAUC, LAUCVF, LAUC Min, LAUC max for assignment of channels for data transmission. By applying evolutionary techniques we will improve the performance of LAUC scheduler.
