This paper examines multicast traffic in single-hop local WDM lightwave networks based on a broadcast-and-select system. We use an approximate analytical solution and Markov model to show the effect of tuning time on system performance. We also show the trade-off between average packet delay against number of channels and network offered load. Finally, we show the trade-off between blocking probability and network offered load.
