Abstract

The increasingly bursty nature of delay-tolerable content delivery services requires new design and control perspectives in state-of-the-art end-to-end bufferless transport networks. Store-and-forward capable networked buffers in end-to-end lightpath networks enable an optical delay-tolerant networking (DTN) service that efficiently improves the capacity of optical networks by time-domain traffic shaping. We model an architecture of the optical DTN and asymptotically analyze the blocking probability performance as a function of the buffer node ratio. We propose a novel buffer node location algorithm by suggesting a bottleneckness centrality measure and evaluate the algorithm by comparing it with reference facility location algorithms. Rigorous simulation studies over practical core network topologies, as a function of networking cost, reveal higher performance of the optical DTN model as well as the proposed network-planning algorithms.
