A local area network control protocol has been designated to implement collision-free optical packet switching. The resource scheduling takes place in advance and is based on a centralized scheme which raises scalability issues. The impact of the protocol on the network scaling parameters such as distance, nodes number and system configuration, is analyzed theoretically and via simulations to imply a stable network structure.
