Abstract

We propose a scheduling algorithm for reducing unused timeslots by considering head gap and tail gap newly generated by assigning a data burst in order to improve the burst loss probability and the throughput performances in Time Sliced Optical Burst Switched (TSOBS) networks. The proposed scheduling algorithm selects the timeslot in which either head gap or tail gap newly generated becomes the minimum. We show that the proposed scheduling algorithm can improve the burst loss probability and the throughput performances as compared with the conventional one.
