Abstract

With growing demands of internet protocol services for transmission capacity and speed, the solution for future high speed optical networks is optical burst switching that is a technology for transmitting large amounts of data bursts through a transparent optical switching network the optical switches in optical burst switching networks play important role in the resource reservation and are very important to ensure reliability and flexibility of the network. This paper is focused on the very important components of Optical Burst Switching networks, ieo ptical switches, specifically thermo-optical switches. In this paper are presented the simulation analysis of performance evaluation of thermo-optical switches executed in the model of Optical Burst Switching network and simulation study of investigation of influence of roughness and layer thickness on the optical properties (spectral reflectance, transmittance) of selected materials (SiO2, Ta2O5, Al2O3) for thermooptical switches.
