The WDM-based multichannel dual bus networks (MCDBN) for high-speed LAN/MAN was proposed in the few years. When a station requests to connect to another, the transmitter of source station and the receiver of destination station must listen to a same channel (wavelength). The problem of using minimal wavelengths for a set of requests on MCDBN had been proved as NP-hard. Intuitively, the problem of providing the multicast services over MCDBN is more complicated. In this paper, we will analyze the
more » ... random approach (RAND) and the Best Effort Multicasting Approach (BEMA) which was proposed for multicast packet transmissions on MCDBN. The derived analysis results are very close to the simulation results.
