The paper presents a new MAC protocol for dual bus networks which is intrinsically fair in bandwidth sharing and retains all the positive features of DQDB including simplicity, robustness, flexibility, 100% bandwidth utilization, and zero access delay at very low load. Features which make this protocol appealing with respect to others DQDB alternatives are… CONTINUE READING
