    Abstract

    In optical networks, multiple data channels are created through Wavelength Division Multiplexing. Users have equal access to all the data channels and communication between various users is possible by exercising data link protocols. Receiver collisions occur when users transmit data packets to busy receivers. This paper presents analytical and simulation results of receiver collisions for two different random access protocols as applied to slotted-multichannel networks. When using random access protocols, it is found through simulations that the slot-to-slot dependency (correlation) can be ignored in these multi-channel networks for these protocols.
