FDDI (fiber distributed data interface) provides both the high bandwidth and low latency needed to match the increased capacity of future personal computers, at least for traditional LAN applications. The improved latency, however, is not low enough for a true multimedia LAN. What is needed is an access method that simplifies the interface to video and sound networks as well. FDDI-II is an extension of FDDI that provides this additional service. The authors discuss the FDDI-II architectural…

TLDR
The results make clear that basic F DDI meets the requirements imposed by traditional local area network (LAN) application and that from a performance point of view FDDI-II is an excellent candidate for complex communications environments.

TLDR
It is shown that from a performance point of view FDDI-II is an excellent candidate for complex communications environments and changing to the enhanced protocol is a much better way to meet the demands than to push the old protocol to its limits.
FDDI: current issues and future plans

TLDR
Fiber Distributed Data Interface (FDDI), a set of standards developed by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) X3T9.5 Task Group, is reviewed and the implementation of FDDI on the synchronous optical network (SONET) is discussed.
Assessment and alternative design of FDDI-II MAC protocol

TLDR
Simulation results that demonstrate the performance superiority of FDDI*-II to F DDI-II in terms of isochronous data blocking probability and packet data delay are presented.
FDDI-2 packet services and latency adjustment buffers
TLDR
The management of packet data in several possible latency adjustment buffer (LAB) implementations during steady state and programming template changes is described, which affects the range of the token rotation time that is used in the packet channel.
FDDI-M: a scheme to double FDDI's ability of supporting synchronous traffic

  • Computer Science
    Proceedings of 1994 International Conference on Parallel and Distributed Systems
  • 1994
TLDR
This paper shows how a few simple modifications to the FDDI's MAC protocol can remove this deficiency and double a ring's ability of supporting synchronous traffic and can also achieve a higher throughput for asynchronous traffic than the standard F DDI and theFDDI-II, thus making it useful even for those networks without heavy synchronous Traffic.
Forging FDDI
TLDR
It is shown that technical innovation came from a variety of contributors and that adopting their ideas converted contributors into supporters, which improved the FDDI standards and became a family of standards with much broader appeal than was imagined initially.

Providing an ATM medium access controller for asynchronous traffic over FDDI-II
TLDR
This thesis presents the research and development for an ATM/FDDI-II hardware device called an A-MAC (ATM-Medium Access Controller), providing the AMAC access to the embedded ATM timeslots by means of a novel two-tiered arbitration protocol.
