A hybrid MAC protocol for a metro WDM network using multiple free spectral ranges of an arrayed-waveguide grating

  journal={Computer Networks},
In this paper, we report on a novel quality-of-service supporting reservation-based medium access control (MAC) protocol for a reliable, scalable, and cost-effective switchless wavelength division multiplexing network. The network is completely passive and is based on an arrayed-waveguide grating (AWG). Each node at the network periphery is equipped with one single fast tunable transceiver for data and one low-cost broadband light source which is spectrally sliced for broadcasting control… CONTINUE READING
