Abstract The in-advance reservation of bandwidth capac-
ity philosophy of Optical Burst Switching architectures via
Burst-Control Packets brings high flexibility in the separa-
tion of network resources for services with different quality-
of-service requirements. In this light, real-time applications
can periodically be guaranteed a certain amount of band-
width reservation for the transmission of traffic with Constant
Bit Rate requirements (for instance IP television, VoIP, etc),
best-effort traffic of the so-called elastic applications (e-mail-
