A multihop wavelength-division multiplexing (WDM) approach, referred to as Shuffle Net, for achieving concurrency in distributed lightwave networks is proposed. A Shuffle Net can be configua19 red with each user having as few as one fixed-wavelength transmitter and one fixed-wavelength receiver, avoiding both wavelength-agility and pretransmission-coordination problems. The network can achieve at least 40% of the maximum efficiency possible with wavelength-agile transmitters and receivers. To transmit a packet from one user to another may require routing the packet through intermediate users, each repeating the packet on a new wavelength until the packet is finally transmitted on a wavelength that the destination user receives. For such a multihop lightwave network, the transmit and receive wavelengths must be assigned to users to provide both a path between all users and the efficient utilization of all wavelength channels
