The accelerating demand for higher network capacities has driven the need for backbone wavelength division multiplexed (WDM) all-optical networks (AON) capable of dynamically routing several millions even billions of packets that are in transit. At the present state of technological development optical burst switching (OBS) appears to be the most promising switching technique for meeting transparency and bandwidth on demand requirements in such ultra high capacity networks. Several protocols have been proposed for OBS networks. In this work, we consider a version of the Just-In-Time (JIT) protocol and investigate its burst drop probability (BDP) performance utilizing a Monte-Carlo simulation approach.
