The aim of the paper is to write about the current state-of-the-art technologies being pursued by researchers and practitioners in both academia and industry. In your case, the topic selected is “Optical Burst Switching”. You have to write a maximum of 5 pages (as per the given IEEE format and referencing). The report must demonstrate that you have a good understanding of the key ideas, system details, and fundamental problems/issues. Specifically, it must cover a subset or all of the following aspects: (i) what is it? (ii) why develop it? or what problem(s) does it solve? (iii) what applications does it facilitate? (iv) what are its key characteristics and limitations? Lastly, it must contain a ‘State-of-the-Art’ section containing a summary of two research papers covering one or more key problems, and corresponding solutions (ignore any analysis and results/experiments).
