Performance Constraint Analysis of WDM LANs with Nonzero Propagation Delays and Destination Conflicts

Performance Constraint Analysis of WDM LANs with Nonzero Propagation Delays and Destination... In this paper, we study the effect of the round trip propagation delay on performance measures of wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) networks. Even though the impact of propagation delay is substantial in the optical network's behavior, most of the studies ignore the effect of this time component in throughput and delay evaluation. We assume a WDM local area network (LAN) where the round trip propagation delay is less or equal to a data packet transmission time. The proposed asynchronous transmission policy avoids data channel collision. In the analysis, we take into account the propagation delays and the effect of receiver collision for a system with a finite number of stations. Photonic Network Communications Springer Journals
