In this paper, we introduce a reliable, scalable, and cost-effective wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) network based on a quality of service supporting reservation based medium access control (MAC) protocol. The network efficiency is significantly increased by spatially reusing wavelengths and exploiting multiple free spectral ranges (FSRs) of arrayed waveguide grating (AWG).
