We propose a channel access protocol for single-hop wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) optical networks. Each node is equipped with a fixed-tuned transmitter, a tunable transmitter, a fixed-tuned receiver, and a tunable receiver. The proposed protocol alleviates the drawbacks of a previous protocol , e.g., invalid data transmissions that follows receiver collisions and possible acknowledgment packet collisions with header/data packets, while retaining many advantages. As a result, the network performance in terms of throughput and packet delay is improved. Analytical models based on the timing diagram analysis, the continuous-time Markov chain, and the randomization technique are developed to assess the proposed protocol, and are validated through event-driven simulation. The performance is evaluated in terms of channel utilization, mean packet delay, and packet delay distribution with variations in the number of nodes, the offered traffic, the size of data packets, and the network propagation delay. Through numerical results and simulation studies, we show that the proposed protocol achieves better channel utilization and incurs lower packet delays.
