Abstract

See full text

The invention is an unique control method that maintains the bandwidth efficiency of Optical Burst Switched, Labeled Optical Burst Switched, and other burst or packet switched networks. The invention also combines in a novel manner the delayed Reserve-a-Fixed-Duration (RFD) class of switching techniques and special classes of slow Switching Elements.
