Paper Abstract

In this paper, a novel dual-bus WDM ring network is proposed, its medium access protocol is discussed, and the system performance is analyzed. Compared with some existing network architecture and protocols, the proposed network can achieve high throughput with moderate delays. We also proposed a slightly revised 10Gb/s WDM Ethernet using the ringshaped dual bus with 4 wavelength channels. Simulation result shows that the proposed 10Gb/s WDM Ethernet has a better throughput and delay performance than a conventional Ethernet based on CSMA.
