The rapid evolution of networks has been driven by new advances in enabling technologies and the explosive growth of Internet traffic. optical burst switching (OBS) is not only cost-effective, but also provides high throughput, high bandwidth utilization, and low transmission latency. These benefits make OBS a viable solution for next-generation metro area networks (MANs) in which the traffic models are changed more dramatically than today's networks. Based on wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) technology, this study presents a loss-free optical burst switching metro ring architecture, designated the collision-free optic-burst ring network (CORNet). The proposed architecture ensures a collision-free transmission of data bursts, while retaining the advantage of the statistical multiplexing provided by conventional OBS networks. The simulation results confirm the effectiveness of the proposed CORNet architecture
