This paper proposes a new access control scheme called multiple round-robin matching protocol (MRM) for high-speed packet-switched WDM LAN. The architecture is based on a broadcast-and-select star network, where each node has an arbitrary number of fast tunable transceivers. Our scheduling algorithm is simple to implement and can overcome data channel and receiver collision by using a round-robin priority. Simulations demonstrate improved mean delay characteristics with a small number of transceivers at each node.
