Abstract:A medium access control (MAC) strategy that accounts for the limited tunability of present-day lasers and filters and yet supports a large total number of wavelengths in the network is proposed. Full interconnectivity, contention-free access and a high value of concurrency are achieved by dividing the network into disjunct subnetworks on a wavelength basis and by reconfiguring these subnetworks on a time basis. Each subnetwork allows for simplified access to be implemented with fast tunable transceivers each assessing only a moderate number of wavelengths. A performance analysis shows that this concept is most efficient when applied to a high-level broadband interconnection metropolitan area network (MAN)
