This letter provides a scalable slotted ring network architecture with nodes using one fixed transmitter, one tunable transmitter and multiple fixed receivers. Furthermore, the novel access protocol with efficient slot reuse is proposed. Theoretical analysis and simulation results show that protocol can achieve high node throughput and low queuing delay.
