Title: Design, performance and wavelength assignment of a wavelength division multiaccess protocol for optical fibre ring networks
Authors: Kamal, A.E.
Issue Date: 1999
Publisher: ELSEVIER
Citation: Computer networks, 31(22). p. 2391-2410
Abstract: This paper presents a multiaccess strategy for use over optical fibre ring networks employing two counter rotating rings, and using wavelength division multiplexing. Transmitters employ tunable lasers, while receivers employ one or more fixed wavelength filters. The paper introduces an algorithm for the optimal assignment of the receivers to the channels, such that the possibility of finding an unused channel leading to a certain receiver is maximized. The paper contains a performance study of the network protocol.
