A method for isochronous traffic in a WDM star network

A new access protocol that handles isochronous traffic in a much better way than previous protocols for wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) star networks is presented. This protocol allows the stations to reserve part of the bandwidth for their isochronous traffic while the rest is used for asynchronous traffic. In addition, this technique requires only one transmitter and one receiver per station and is free from the constraint of a control channel
