Optical burst switching (OBS) is a promising solution for realizing IP over WDM since it combines the advantages of optical circuit switching and optical packet switching (OPS) while overcoming their shortages. In this paper, the mechanisms to implement burst assembly and scheduling in an OBS edge router are discussed. The performance of the output traffic from the edge router, e.g. traffic shape and delay, is analyzed with simulation results. The results show that the traffic shape and the delay are affected by maximum delay specified by different classes of services, the maximum length of the burst, the burstiness of the traffic, and the mechanisms of burst assembly and scheduling. By properly designing, the traffic shape can be improvement while the delay keeping in the bounds.
