Providing a photonic alternative to the current electronic switching in the backbone, optical packet switching (OPS) and optical burst switching (OBS) require optical buffering. Optical buffering exploits delays in long optical fibers; an optical buffer is implemented by routing packets through a set of fiber delay lines (FDLs). Previous studies pointed out that, in comparison with electronic buffers, optical buffering suffers from an additional performance degradation. This contribution builds on this observation by studying optical buffer performance under more general traffic assumptions. Features of the optical buffer model under consideration include a Markovian arrival process, general burst sizes and a finite set of fiber delay lines of arbitrary length. Our algorithmic approach yields instant analytic results for important performance measures such as the burst loss ratio and the mean delay.
