To achieve lower assembly delay at optical burst switching edge node, this paper proposes an approach called current weight length prediction (CWLP) to improve existing estimate mechanism in burst assembly. CWLP method takes into account the arrived traffic in prediction time adequately. A parameter `weight' is introduced to make a dynamic tradeoff between the current and past traffic under different offset time. Simulation results show that CWLP can achieve a significant improvement in terms of traffic estimation in various offset time and offered load.
