The paper deals with fairness issues in a slotted, single-hop, WDM (Wavelength Division Multiplexing) optical architecture, based on a folded bus topology, previously proposed as a broadband access system or as a metro network. The peculiar fairness problem arising in this folded bus based architecture is addressed and an extension of the MetaRing protocol to the WDM scenario, named Multi-MetaRing, is proposed. Feasible Multi-MetaRing strategies are defined and analyzed. Both fair access and high aggregate network throughput can be achieved with a low complexity distributed access protocol by properly handling node access through all WDM channels.

Abstract

The paper deals with fairness issues in a slotted, single-hop, WDM (Wavelength Division Multiplexing) optical architecture, based on a folded bus topology, previously proposed as a broadband access system or as a metro network. The peculiar fairness problem arising in this folded bus based architecture is addressed and an extension of the MetaRing protocol to the WDM scenario, named Multi-MetaRing, is proposed. Feasible Multi-MetaRing strategies are defined and analyzed. Both fair access and high aggregate network throughput can be achieved with a low complexity distributed access protocol by properly handling node access through all WDM channels.
