In this letter we consider burst switching for very high speed routing in the next generation Internet backbone. In this scenario, Internet protocol (IP) packets to a given destination are collected in bursts at the network edges. We propose a burst assembly mechanism that can reduce the traffic autocorrelation or degree of self-similarity, and at the same time keep the delay due to burst formation limited at the network edges.
