Abstract
Tunable-channel multi-access (TCMA) networks are a new class of multi-channel networks that employ local channel tuning to reduce the node complexity. These networks are hybrids of switching networks and multiaccess networks and are vary suitable for high-speed multimedia integrated networking. Various distributed network protocols for these TCMA networks based on star, bus and ring topologies are discussed, including two particularly promising protocols, ACTA and EQEB. Both are based on bus/ring topologies, compatible to ATM, have simple design, high throughput, low delay and a performance that is independent of the round-trip delay. Various multiplexing strategies (space-division, wavelength-division, time-division and subcarrier) employing regenerative and non-regenerative implementations are also discussed.
