We propose a new optical hybrid switching system that takes advantage of both optical burst switching (OBS) and optical circuit switching (OCS) technologies. This system classifies incoming IP traffic flows into short-lived and long-lived flows. We model the system as a single server queue in a Markovian environment. The burst generation process is assumed to follow a two-state Markov modulated Poisson process (MMPP), and the service rate fluctuates based on the number of concurrent OCS sessions. Results for the mean delay and queue size are derived.
