  journal={IEEE Journal on Selected Areas in Communications},
Rainbow is a prototype optical metropolitan area net work MAN developed at IBM It employs wavelength division multiplexing WDM on a ber optic passive star network topology with each station equipped with a laser which is xed tuned to its own unique wavelength and a Fabry Perot lter which is tunable across all wave lengths This paper presents a model and analysis of the protocol used in the Rainbow prototype using the equi librium point analysis EPA technique We examine the system s throughput… CONTINUE READING
