In this paper we study the effect of channel sharing on the performance of multihop lightwave networks when channel sharing is achieved b y using a time-division multiple-access (TDMA) technique. We present a result which gives an upper bound for the throughput that can be achieved with any virtual topology that can be established with N stations assuming that the trafic distribution i s uniform and that all virtual links have the same capacity. Using this result we determine the optimal degreedoi:10.1109/infcom.1994.337688 dblp:conf/infocom/KovacevicGB94 fatcat:pgd3ou66x5gdlbtsyqunhsrglq
