In single-hop WDM networks, a data packet can be transmitted from one node to another only when one of the transmitters of the source node and one of the receivers of the destination node are tuned to the same wavelength, i.e., a data packet is transmitted from one node to another without going through intermediate nodes.

This paper shows that, for single-hop wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) networks, a multicast scheduling algorithm which always tries to partition a multicast transmission into multiple unicast or multicast transmissions may not always produce lower mean packet delay than a multicast scheduling algorithm that does not partition multicast transmissions. The performance of a multicast scheduling algorithm may depend on the traffic conditions and the availability of the channel resource in the network. A hybrid multicast scheduling algorithm that can be used in single-hop WDM networks
