heal.abstract We consider the problem of carrying IP packet traffic over a broadcast WDM network. The network operates under a schedule that masks the transceiver tuning latency. Variable length IP packets are segmented at the transmitting end, the fixed-size segments are transmitted in slots specified by the schedule and are then reassembled into the original packet at the receiving end. We develop and analyze approximately a queueing model of the network in order to obtain the queue-length distribution and loss probabilities at the transmitting and receiving side of nodes. The analysis is carried out assuming finite buffer sizes, non-uniform destination probabilities, and an appropriate arrival process model. Our work makes it possible to study the interactions among the various system parameters (such as load balancing and scheduling algorithms, the number of channels, and the buffer capacity) and to predict, explain, and fine tune the performance of the network. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first comprehensive performance study of optical local area networks under variable length packets. en
