An optical burst switching (OBS) network platform is established with a ring topology of three nodes. A congestion alleviated scheme using advanced token protocol and wavelength tunable receivers is demonstrated to optimize the network platform. Experimental results testify that this scheme can resist collision at the level of 0.1% congestion rate.
