Abstract: In this letter, we describe and analyse a phenomenon unique to bufferless Optical Burst Switched (OBS) networks called the streamline effect. This is the phenomenon wherein bursts within an input stream to a core node only contend with those from other input streams but not among themselves. It causes the burst loss probabilities at a link to depend strongly on the number of input streams to the link and their relative burst rates. We derive a burst loss probability formula that can account for all the observed burst loss behaviours. The accuracy of the analytical formula is confirmed through various simulation scenarios. © 2006 IEEE.
