An efficient void filling (VF) algorithm is proposed for wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) optical packet switches (OPSes) handling variable-packet-length self-similar traffic. The computation complexity of the proposed algorithm is extremely low. We further compare the switching performance of the proposed algorithm with that of the conventional one. We demonstrate that the proposed algorithm offers significantly lower computation complexity with adequate performance.
