This paper compares the performance of two alternative optical burst switching (OBS) resource reservation protocols, regarding their relative throughput. Comparison results are given for ring networks with up to twenty nodes. The comparison methodology is based on an analytical network model, which is used to obtain the network normalised throughput as a function of several useful network parameters, such as the average offered traffic load, the round-trip propagation delay, the number of network nodes, and the switching fabric configuration time.
