ABSTRACT
The efficient transmission of TCP traffic over OBS networks is a challenging problem, due to the high sensitivity of TCP congestion control mechanism to losses. In this work, we propose solutions to this problem, through the burst assembly and scheduling mechanism of OBS. We investigate and propose algorithms to achieve performance enhancements for TCP traffic by taking into account TCP state information. We prove our claims with references to well-established TCP models, and validate the proposed algorithms through simulations.
