The combined effect of optical and wireless subnetworks in an hypothetical future scenario where core networks have evolved to the still prototype Optical Burst Switching (OBS) technology is an open research issue. This paper studies this hybrid scenario, in the particular case of 802.11 access, by reviewing the key aspects of OBS and 802.11 with an impact on the performance of TCP, and makes a simulation-based assessment of the relative influence of both technologies over the effective end-to-end behaviour of TCP. 1 Introduction The exploitation of Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) as a dynamic Optical Circuit Switching technology (OCS), where lightpaths are optically switched to interconnect the backbone edge nodes, has just started.
This technology removes the opto-electronic conversion bottleneck in the core of the network and provides the full capacity of an optical carrier to transport data edge to edge.
However, it yields no statistical time multiplexing gain of lightpath capacity and connectivity is constrained by the number of optical carriers provided...
