|Title:||Performance study on protocols supporting multimedia traffic on WDM optical network||Authors:||Wu, Yongcong.||Keywords:||DRNTU::Engineering::Electrical and electronic engineering::Optics, optoelectronics, photonics||Issue Date:||2003||Abstract:||In the project, we evaluate a new approach to integrate different types of medium access protocols into a single WDM network system. The new MAC protocols are termed multimedia wavelength division multiple access (M-WDMA) and M-WDMA+. The performance comparisons between M-WDMA+ and conventional protocols, such as interleaved time division multiple access (ITDMA) protocol, reservation-based protocol and interleaved slotted aloha (ISA) protocol are presented. The thesis also presents the performance comparison between M-WDMA+ and another new MAC protocol, convergence of real-time and data services (CONRAD) protocol. In addition, we estimate the performance of M-WDMA+ under unbalanced traffic conditions in the project. From the performance comparisons and analysis, it can be concluded that M-WDMA+ is suitable for multimedia streams transmission.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10356/3783||Rights:||Nanyang Technological University||Fulltext Permission:||restricted||Fulltext Availability:||With Fulltext|
