The aggressive reservation strategy in optical burst switching systems is investigated. A success-probability-driven algorithm and a bandwidth-utilisation-driven algorithm are proposed to facilitate the authors' recently proposed forward resource reservation transmission scheme. The principles and the theoretical analysis of these two algorithms are presented and their performance is compared with respect to the reservation success probability and the bandwidth usage efficiency. Simulation results have validated the algorithms and the analysis.
