Car Optical Burst Switching OMNeT++ simulator

Source codes of all-optical simulator based on OMNeT++ event driven simulator. This simulator implements a new paradigm of Optical Burst Switching (OBS) framework called Car OBS that concatenates a number of burst for better link utilization.

In order to use a given network topology as efficiently as possible Stream-line effect (SLE) is used. Then combination of SLE routing and wavelength assignment (RWA) with grooming provided by OBS framework GRWA algorithm is proposed and verified. This verification was tackled by this simulator.

Details about SLE and GRWA can be found in this publication:
