An improved dynamic protocol for variable-sized messages is proposed in WDM-based local network, when nodal transceiver has nonzero tuning time. With the protocol, data channel is assigned dynamically. However, once a node reserves one data channel, it can persistently use the reserved channel till message transmission is finished. The protocol is analyzed with a finite population model and the throughput-delay characteristics are investigated as performance measures.
