A multigigabit/second local area network is described that uses a subcarrier multiplexed optical carrier to provide asynchronous, parallel information channels that can simultaneously transport variable-length datagrams, ATM-cells, and circuit-switched video traffic. A separate `token-passing' control channel provides efficient multiuser access to the information channels.
