Summary form only given. In this talk we will describe an architecture and an associated MAC protocol that eliminates the need for slotting and synchronization, uses one tunable transceiver per optical terminal (OT), yet results in efficient bandwidth utilization. We will also describe the potential application of this technology for providing bandwidth on demand in access networks and as a general purpose, high-performance, network technology.
Date of Conference: 22-27 Feb. 1998
