This paper presents a novel hybrid optical burst/circuit switched (OBCS) ingress edge router solution towards ubiquitous photonic Grid networking. It is based on the deployment of Grid application-aware packet classification and burst aggregation algorithms as well as agile and intelligent optical resource allocation. The proposed solution utilises a generic and highly scalable multi-dimension classification mechanism able to provide wire-speed classification at high bit rates up to 40 Gbps. The mechanism is responsible for per application switching (OBS/OCS) service selection and Grid Differentiated Service (GridDiffServ) provisioning. A CoS-Traffic-Time-LEngth-Service-oriented aSembly (COST2LESS) algorithm has been proposed to smooth the incoming Grid traffic and provide some CoS differentiation and initial results are presented. An agile optical data transmission mechanism has been also implemented to map Grid traffic asynchronously into optical bursts or wavelength channels (data plane) based on user/application-specific requirements. Furthermore an optical burst Ethernet switched (OBES) transport mechanism has been implemented to transport out-of- band control plane signalling information.
