  • Published 1987 in Computer Communication Review


Transmission performance capabilities of the IEEE Standard 802.5 token-ring network are explored from the perspective of a network designer. Typical workloads are presented which quantify the demand placed on transmission resources by various classes of users. Next, a means of characterizing a network's size is developed, and several reference networks are… (More)
