Abstract

The asymptotic ratio between the blocking probabilities of BS and JET protocols was derived as the number of wavelengths supported by the optical switch. BS offered a factor of ((1-c)2/c)k improvement in blocking probability value. This value can be more than two orders of magnitude for foreseeable dense WDM systems.
