In this paper, we present a performance study of OBS (Optical Burst Switched) combined node via mixed loss delay queueing models. In an OBS network, a node combining both edge and core switching functions multiplex the local traffic with the transit traffic on the output wavelengths channels. To control the channel sharing, strategies are proposed and analyzed in this study by extending the basic mixed loss delay queueing models. The presented models are solved by Markov chain techniques and the results are compared, and where necessary also supported, by the simulations of an OBS node implemented in detail
