In this paper, we analytically study the performance of her delay line as a means of contention resolution in optical routers. We consider asynchronous arrival of fixed length packets to a single-channel optical link equipped with a single delay line, and investigate the effectiveness of using delay line in improving the loss performance. The results include accurate equations for congestion rate and queuing delay, which arc validated through simulation.
