This paper compares the performance of two time-division multiplexed media access protocols designed for star-coupled wavelength-division multiplexed (WDM) photonic networks. The TDMA-C protocol is reservation based: one WDM channel is used to reserve access for data packet transmission on the remaining data channels. Control channel access arbitration is achieved through time-division multiplexing, enabling all active nodes the opportunity to transmit once every control cycle. This approach significantly reduces the long synchronization delays typical of time-division multiplexing systems since the control cycle length is proportional to the control packet size rather than the data packet size. Every node in this system has one turnable transmitter and two receivers
