In this paper we present a concept of new architectural model consisting of multiple loop delay to increase the throughput. The simulated behavior of an optical node has been realized by using an n x m optical switch and recirculating optical delay lines. This investigation infers the scaling behaviors of the proposed architec-ture to maintain efficient use of the buffer under Poisson traffic loading. The analysis also reports the traffic handling capacity for the given complexity of the node architectural design.
